Neuropeptide Y-immunoreactive neuronal system and colocalization with FMRFamide in the optic lobe and peduncle complex of the octopus (Octopus vulgaris)

Abstract

The distribution of neuropeptide Y (NPY)-like immunoreactivity and its colocalization with FMRFamide were investigated in the optic lobe and peduncle complex of the octopus (Octopus vulgaris) by using immunohistochemical techniques. In the optic lobe cortex, NPY-immunoreactive (NPY-IR) fibers were observed in the plexiform layer, although no NPY-IR somata… (More)
