The pair of vasopressin-like immunoreactive (VPLI) neurones of the locust Locusta migratoria have cell bodies in the suboesophageal ganglion and extensive arborization throughout the central nervous sytem. The activity of the VPLI neurone is regulated by a spontaneously active excitatory descending interneurone (DI) that is, in turn, inhibited by an uncharacterised extraocular photoreceptor (EOP) system located in the brain. Light directed at the brain results in inhibition of DI activity… CONTINUE READING
