1. Several large neurons have been shown to project from the ventral nerve cord of the locust into the brain where they enter into association with second-order occellar neurons in one of two distinct areas. 2. By using a combined recording and staining technique in the circumoesophageal connectives one of these neurons, VCP3, has been identified as the contralateral delayed “off” ocellar unit previously found in the ventral nerve cord. 3. All the types of ocellar neurons known to be present in… CONTINUE READING
