[1. When the rocking response of Automeris cinerea is repeatedly released at 20° C. it undergoes gradual waning. Waning can be accelerated by the injection of 2:4 dinitrophenol or sodium azide, and can be made to reach zero within a 20 or 30 min. habituation routine. This effect of the drugs is not found in preparations which walk before rocking. Unlike A. junonia and A. titania tested at 29° C, waning in A. cinerea is not primarily a function of competing flight excitability. 2. If rocking is elicited at widely spaced intervals, during poisoning with dinitrophenol or azide, its strength does not decline until shortly before knockdown. Accelerated waning, therefore, is dependent upon performance. The response shows recovery after drug-induced habituation. 3. Cyanide induces convulsions in high dosages; lower dosages slightly delay habituation, but do not significantly raise the upper limit of the response., 1.
