Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ... This is particularly the case in the starved leech. Thigmotactic proclivities very materially affect, at times, the reactions of the animal to light. 27. The internal states of the leech exercise a profound influence upon its behavior. The chief effect of hunger and satiety seems to be that of altering the irritability of the animal; hunger producing a greater relative responsiveness; satiety, a tendency towards sluggishness. It is suggested that the presence of a superfluity of foodstuffs within the body leads to the accumulation of intermediate metabolic products which may react on the animal as do the fatigue substances. 28. The attempt in this paper on the modifiability of behavior in the leech has been to analyze, so far as possible, this behavior into its component physiological factors. In the opinion of the writer, such a method should lead to the kind of results most needed in the science of animal behavior. X. BIBLIOGRAPHY Adams, G. P. 1903.
