Synopsis. The stomatogastric nervous system of decapod crustaceans is
an ideal system for the study of the processes underlying the generation
of rhythmic movements by the nervous system. In this chapter we review
recent work that uses mathematical analyses and computer simulations
to understand: 1) the role of individual currents in controlling the activity
of neurons, and 2) the effects of electrical coupling on the activity of
neuronal oscillators. The aim of this review is to highlight, for the phys-
iologist, what these studies have taught us about the organization and
function of single cell and multicellular neuronal oscillators.
