SummaryThe radial nerve cords of members of the class Ophiuroidea consist of two parts, the ectoneural and the hyponeural tissues, which are separated by an acellular basal lamina. The hyponeural tissue is composed entirely of motor fibres. The cell bodies of the hyponeural neurones are arranged in ganglia, one to each segment of the arm, and each containing approximately one hundred cell bodies. Synaptic contact between the two tissues occurs across the basal lamina. Ultrastructural evidence… Expand
