The neural ganglion of ascidians exhibits a novel and rapid pattern of regeneration whereby within approximately 28-35 days of total ablation an entirely new neural complex is formed. In normal adults, neuronal cell bodies expressing substance P- (SP-Li), neurokinin A-(NKA-Li), CCK/gastrin- (CCK-Li), and insulin-like immunoreactivity exhibit a clearly defined pattern of localization in the cortical rind of the ganglion with characteristic long processes arising from the perikarya running… CONTINUE READING
