Using the video as a starting point, students should learn about the crayfish, Swimmerets - thin leg-like structures used to swim, move water over the gills, and .
The information that coordinates movements of swimmerets on different segments of the crayfish abdomen is conducted by interneurons that originate in each. In females, the first pair of swimmerets is like the rest, but all of the surface area for gas exchange is much less, and the crayfish suffocates. Rhythmic movements of crayfish swimmerets are coordinated by a neural circuit that links their four abdominal ganglia. Each swimmeret is driven by its own.
Attached to the thorax of the crayfish are four pairs of walking legs and one pair of Crayfish also have smaller limbs under the tail known as swimmerets. The Co-ordination of Swimmeret Movements in the Crayfish, Procambarus Clarkii bursts of activity which accompany rhythmic movements of the swimmerets. Answers to the external anatomy of a crayfish worksheet. Locate the swimmerets (appendages attached to each segment of the abdomen). Are the. ABSTRACT. The ventral nerve cord of crayfish contains axons of five pairs of excitatory interneurons, each of which can activate the swimmeret system.
