Abstract

A new sensory system, in the abdomen of the cricketAcheta domesticus, is described. It consists of hair-like receptors, which we have called ‘bristles’, distributed on the cercus and abdomen. The sensory neurons, innervating bristles of a wide variety of shapes and sizes, project to a common area of the terminal abdominal ganglion. This region is distinct… (More)
