The left cerebral ganglion was ablated from 72 anesthetized, adult Melampus bidentatus (Mollusca: Pulmonata). Skin incisions were well healed and normal feeding and locomotion observed four days after surgery. Dissections of animals sacrificed weekly showed that most nerves and connectives regrew within 30 days, attaching to the swollen end of the major labial nerve.
