This study sets out to provide a systematic analysis of the development of the primordial central nervous system (CNS) in embryos of two decapod crustaceans, the Australian crayfish Cherax destructor (Malacostraca, Decapoda, Astacida) and the parthenogenetic Marbled crayfish (Marmorkrebs, Malacostraca, Decapoda, Astacida) by histochemical labelling with(More)
Decapod crustaceans have a well-defined olfactory system characterised by a set of chemosensitive sensilla grouped together in an array (the olfactory organ) on their antennules. Olfactory receptor neurons in the olfactory organ project exclusively to, and terminate in, cone-shaped olfactory glomeruli in a discrete neuropil in the brain, the olfactory lobe.(More)
It has been previously suggested that there is a conservative program for neural development amongst the arthropods, on the basis that a stereotyped set of cells involved in establishing the axon tracts in the CNS of insect embryos is also present in crayfish embryos. We have examined the spatiotemporal pattern of axon growth from a set of early(More)
