The nervous system of echinoderms consists of two parts, the ectoneural and the hyponeural. The latter is purely motor in function and of mesodermal origin. It is separated from the main ectoneural nervous tissue by a true basement membrane of collagenous connective tissue. Previous anatomical work has suggested that a chemical synapse occurs across the basement membrane with the hyponeural neurons being post synaptic. The brittlestar Ophiura ophiura contains very large ectoneural interneurons… Expand
