Hierarchy of Habituation Induced by Mechanical Stimuli in Caenorhabditis elegans
C. elegans becomes habituated to repetitive mechanical stimuli. We compared the habituated states induced by three types of mechanical stimuli: touch on the head (head-touch), touch on the anterior body (body-touch), and mechanical tapping of the Petri dish, all of which evoke backward movement. The habituation patterns were similar, but differed in retention period and/or the rate of recovery. We found a hierarchy between the habituated states induced by the three types of mechanical stimulidoi:10.2108/zsj.16.423 fatcat:sldt37lck5ggbkms4lgypos5z4
