The morphology of the neuroendocrine caudodorsal cells (CDCs), which are involved in the regulation of female reproduction in the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis, was studied in young (200 to 234 days of age) and old (400 to 500 days) animals. Lucifer Yellow fills of ventral CDCs showed that in young animals ventral CDCs branch ipsilaterally as well as contralaterally in the cerebral commissure. In old animals these branches were reduced at different degrees and in some cases even lacking… CONTINUE READING
