This dataset (total size: ~97 MB) contains extracellular nerve and muscle recordings of the feeding system of the marine mollusc Aplysia californica, obtained from intact freely behaving animals, with accompanying measurements of swallowing force and synchronized video of behavior. Animals were fed both uniform strips of seaweed without imposed load and uniform, unbreakable strips of seaweed anchored to a force transducer.
