FMRFamide-like immunoreactive neurons of the nervus terminalis of teleosts innervate both retina and pineal organ
The tetrapeptide FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) was first isolated from molluscan ganglia. Subsequently, it has become clear that vertebrate brains also contain endogenous FMRFamide-like substances.Expand

Projections of the olfactory tract fibers in the nurse shark (Ginglymostoma cirratum).
Summary Five nurse sharks were killed between 6 and 43 days after the olfactory tract had been cut unilaterally. Whereas the axon degeneration was demonstrated best with the Nauta-Laidlaw techniqueExpand
