  • In the insect Manduca sexta the genitalia on the terminal abdominal segments are sexually dimorphic structures but they arise during metamorphosis from segments that are monomorphic in the larva. The motoneurons in the terminal ganglion that innervate these structures were examined by cobalt backfills of peripheral nerves. In the larval stage the population of motoneurons innervating the terminal segments was identical in both sexes. By contrast, the motoneuron populations in the terminal… CONTINUE READING
