Polymeric electrochemical elements of adaptive networks are considered. The main features of these elements are compared with the elements of the nervous system of the snail Lymnaea stagnalis. In particular, synthetic analogues of neurons and synapses are fabricated. The capability of the system for learning is demonstrated with a model of the simplest network composed of eight electrochemical elements. An alternative approach based on the formation of fiber networks is proposed. This approach will make it possible to fabricate more complex systems with a random distribution of mutual contacts between elements.

    The pleural interneuron PlB is a white neuron in the pleural ganglion of the snail Lymnaea. We test the hypothesis that it inhibits neurons at all levels of the feeding system, using a combination of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology. There is just one PlB in each pleural ganglion. Its axon...

    5-HT (serotonin) is a ubiquitous neurotransmitter that produces ciliary beating in gastropods when applied topically, but ciliary beating caused by gastropod serotonergic neurons has been described in only three neuron pairs. We extend these results to the North American Lymnaea stagnalis...
