We used an antiserum directed against gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) fixed with glutaraldehyde (Hoskins et al., Cell Tissue Res. 244:243-252, '86) to label neurons with GABA-like immunoreactivity (GLI) in wholemounts of the stomatogastric ganglion and each segmental ganglion of crayfish, except the brain. Each abdominal ganglion had an average of 63 labeled neurons, or 10% of all their neurons. Each peripheral nerve of each abdominal ganglion except the last contained labeled axons. Within each… CONTINUE READING
