The aminergic innervation of the foot of Lymnaea stagnalis was investigated using electron microscopy, immunocytochemistry, and HPLC. The foot was found to contain large amounts of serotonin and dopamine, though at lower concentrations than are found in nervous tissue. Serotonin containing tissue was concentrated in the ventral surface of the foot, under ciliated areas of the epidermis where it occurred in varicosities, with fine tracts joining these varicosities. Varicosities also occurred in… CONTINUE READING
