5 cardiostimulating neurons belonging to 3 different functional groups were studied in visceral and right parietal ganglia of the African snail. The cell VG-1 formerly believed to be an interneuron, was shown to be a motoneuron of the heart producing the EPSPs in the myocardium. The data obtained show a considerable similarity in organization of the cardioregulating neurons system in different species of the gastropods.
