The distribution of monoamines inLimax maximus was studied by the histochemical fluorescent method of Falck and Hillarp. The number of 5-HT-containing and catecholamine-containing perikarya in the central nervous system is small compared with the non-fluorescent perikarya. However, all the ganglia except the proto-cerebral ganglia have some amine-containing neurons. There are relatively larger numbers of fluorescent cells in the cerebral, visceral, pedal and right parietal ganglia than in the… CONTINUE READING
