Acetylcholine is known to be a neurotransmitter in crustacean central nervous systems, but the numbers and distribution of cholinergic neurons in the segmental ganglia have not been described. To begin a census of cholinergic neurons in these ganglia, we used a histochemical assay for acetylcholinesterase to map neurons that contained this enzyme in the six abdominal ganglia of crayfish. In each abdominal ganglion, about 47 cell bodies were stained. The distributions of these stained cells in… CONTINUE READING
