Invertebrate neurophylogeny: suggested terms and definitions for a neuroanatomical glossary
BackgroundInvertebrate nervous systems are highly disparate between different taxa. This is reflected in the terminology used to describe them, which is very rich and often confusing. Even veryExpand

Comparative neuroanatomy of Caudofoveata, Solenogastres, Polyplacophora, and Scaphopoda (Mollusca) and its phylogenetic implications
The nervous system of invertebrates is considered to be a very conservative organ system and thus can be helpful to elucidate questions of phylogenetic relationships. Up to now, comparativeExpand

Structure of the nervous system in Tubiluchus troglodytes (Priapulida)
The nervous system of the meiobenthic priapulid species Tubiluchus troglodytes is described by immunohistochemistry and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The brain is circumpharyngeal, consistingExpand

Architecture of the nervous system in two Dactylopodola species (Gastrotricha, Macrodasyida)
Immunohistochemical stainings have become standard tools to describe the nervous system, but usually only singular or few markers are used and consequently show only subsets of neurons within theExpand

Postembryonic development of dorsoventral and longitudinal musculature in Pycnophyes kielensis (Kinorhyncha, Homalorhagida).
We investigated the development of dorsoventral and longitudinal musculature in all postembryonic stages of the kinorhynch Pycnophyes kielensis. Although the earliest stages have only 8 externallyExpand

Tubiluchus lemburgi, a new species of meiobenthic Priapulida
Abstract With seven described species Tubiluchus is the most species-rich genus among priapulids. We here describe a new species, Tubiluchus lemburgi sp. nov., from the island of Tenerife (CanaryExpand

The nervous system of Neodasys chaetonotoideus (Gastrotricha: Neodasys) revealed by combining confocal laserscanning and transmission electron microscopy: evolutionary comparison of neuroanatomy
We present a reconstruction of the nervous system of Neodasys chaetonotoideus Remane, 1927 (Gastrotricha, Chaetonotida) based on different microscopical methods: (1) immunohistochemistryExpand
