  1. 1.

    There is a correlation in the mean frequencies of discharge in adjacent neurons of the sub-esophageal ganglion ofHelix pomatia.

  2. 2.

    A hig probability of discharge of one cell in the mid-interval following discharge of the other is demonstrated.

  3. 3.

    With tactile stimulation this tendency to reciprocity is diminished and spikes occur in a more random relation to each other.

  4. 4.

    The phenomena described can be explained by the assumption that lateral inhibition takes place between pacemaker neurons possessing a common input.
