Distribution and functional anatomy of amine-containing neurons in decapod crustaceans.


One of the lessons learned from studying the nervous systems of phylogenetically distant species is that many features are conserved. Indeed, aminergic neurons in invertebrate and vertebrate systems share a multitude of common characteristics. In this review, the varied roles of serotonin, octopamine, dopamine, and histamine in decapod crustaceans are… (More)
