To find the primary mechanism for the frequency changes of electrical oscillations in the procerebral (PC) lobe of a slug, we electrically stimulated the tip, middle and basal regions of the digits of the superior and inferior tentacles and recorded the local field potentials from the PC lobe. Stimuli to the middle and basal regions of the digits of the inferior tentacle significantly decreased the frequency of electrical oscillations in the PC lobe, whereas those to the tip region of the digits of the inferior tentacle and all regions of the digits of the superior tentacle increased it. These findings suggest that the change in the frequency of electrical oscillations in the PC lobe depends on the excited region in the digits, providing the first presentation of the physiological difference in the olfactory function between the superior and inferior tentacles.
