The distribution of putative catecholamines has been previously studied in the nervous system of three Promesostoma species using the glyoxylic-acid-induced fluorescence (GAIF) method. In this communication, the results are reported of a similar study of Promesostoma balticum, which is classified to another group of species in the genus. Promesostoma species from two different species groups differed in the position of neurons associated with the ventral and lateral cords. All the studied…

TLDR
The three-store arrangement of cerebral neurons is revealed in the presence of a cone-shaped trunk at the anterior end of the body, when all 5 pairs of neurons are connected to each other with longitudinal and transverse processes.
