ependently, the researchers found that in certain instances, like longitudinal contractions, both layers o
f muscle are active, possibly allowing the animal to expel the influx of water that is constantly flowing into its cells.
Each individual cell also appeared to serve more than one function, and participate in more than one activation pattern. In
fact, the nerve nets appear to play a relatively limited role in movement. Neurons may initially trigger the a
ctivity, but the patterns of propagation are organized by the muscle cells themselves working in unison.
“The patterns of activation we identified were not implement
ed by specific, dedicated cells, but instead depended on the properties of the muscle tissue as a wh
ole, and the interconnections between cells,” said first author John Szymanski, a former MBL Whitman Center investigator.

he much-anticipated debate between a Chinese anchorwoman and an A
merican counterpart on a prime-time TV show Wednesday night turned out to be more like
a Q&A session, with the host and her guest disputing everything from tariffs to China’s developing nation status.
But Trish Regan, host of Trish Regan Primetime on the Fox Business N

the wild where they belong. It gained support from many travel agencies. By the end of last year, mo

Although some travelers are still not fully aware of the concept of animal-friendly tra
vel, the research reveals that 90 percent of them think the concept should be widely promoted.
