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

Distribution of serotonin-immunoreactive neurons in the brain of sockeye salmon fry.
The organization of the serotonergic cell groups in the brainstem of fishes and amphibians has received relatively little attention. It has been generally assumed that they are little differentiated… Expand
