Abstract : Investigations were conducted aiming at the achievement of 5 main purposes: (1) the rhythmic patterns of the bioelectric behavior and the temporal coordination of activity among given identifiable Aplysia neurons; (2)transitions evoked by synaptic activation; storage of the information; (3) the general 'receptor properties' of the neuronal membrane; a model for a sensory coding; (4) the control exerted by the blood factors: pO2, pCO2, pH; (5) the cytological, ultrastructure and cytochemical data in their relations to the foregoing themata. The results have been reported in 42 papers which are listed in this document.
