  • SummaryIn a comparative study, the anatomy of neurons immunoreactive with an antiserum against the crustacean β-pigment-dispersing hormone was investigated in the brain of several orthopteroid insects including locusts, crickets, a cockroach, and a phasmid. In all species studied, three groups of neurons with somata in the optic lobes show pigment-dispersing hormone-like immunoreactivity. Additionally, in most species, the tritocerebrum exhibits weak immunoreactive staining originating from… CONTINUE READING
