Nervous network in larvae of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis

  title={Nervous network in larvae of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis},
  author={Katsumi Takamura},
  journal={Development Genes and Evolution},
 With the use of the monoclonal antibody UA301, which specifically recognizes the nervous system in ascidian larvae, the neuronal connections of the peripheral and central nervous systems in the ascidian Ciona intestinalis were observed. Three types of peripheral nervous system neurons were found: two located in the larval trunk and the other in the larval tail. These neurons were epidermal and their axons extended to the central nervous system and connected with the visceral ganglion directly… CONTINUE READING
