Brain Behav Evol (1991) 37 (5): 307–316.
Published Online: 02 June 2010
...Joseph R. Fetcho Most swimming vertebrates, particularly fishes and amphibians, avoid predators by producing an escape behavior initiated by a single action potential in one of a pair of cells, the Mauthner cells, located in the hindbrain. The most prominent feature of this behavior is a rapid...

...Udo Will Presently available data on anatomical, electrophysiological, and behavioral aspects of the Mauthner cell in amphibians are reviewed. Urodelian Mauthner cells appear morphologically distinct from those in anurans with respect to their abundant somatic dendrites, axon cap structures, lack...

...Hilary S. Bierman; Steven J. Zottoli; Melina E. Hale Studies of vertebrate brain evolution have focused primarily on patterns of gene expression or changes in size and organization of major brain regions. The Mauthner cell, an important reticulospinal neuron that functions in the startle response...

...Michael A. Barry; Michael V.L. Bennett Giant fibers are large reticular interneurons that mediate excitatory input from the Mauthner cells to pectoral-fin motoneurons. The present study revealed extensive giant-fiber projections to central targets other than the pectoral-fin motoneurons...

The Mauthner cell's sensitivity to vestibular input is centrally modulated during changes in behavioral state. Mauthner action...

...Richard R. Fay Mauthner cells receive neurally coded information from the otolith organs in fishes, and it is most likely that initiation and directional characteristics of the C-start response depend on this input. In the goldfish, saccular afferents are sensitive to sound pressure (< –30 dB re...

Startle responses in which the Mauthner cell does not participate are rare [Eaton and Bombardieri, 1978], and may occur primarily in experiments where fish are repeatedly...
