We studied the neuroanatomy of the terminal (sixth abdominal) ganglion in the crayfish Procambarus clarkii with silver-impregnated sections and nickel fills. We describe the fiber tracts, commissures and neuropilar areas, and give the topological relationships of motoneurons and intersegmental interneurons with reference to their neuropilar landmark structures. All five anterior abdominal ganglia have an almost identical number of 600–700 neurons with a similar pattern of distribution. Each… CONTINUE READING
