The fine structure of the soft tissues at the bases of spines in the sea-urchin Echinus esculentus has been examined with particular reference to the innervation of these appendages. The basal nerve ring encircling the spine contains many somata of neurones, and circumferentially directed elements, as well as tangled neuropil. The smooth muscles that bring about spine-pointing movements are innervated by terminals that contain two different types of vesicles, suggesting dual innervation by… CONTINUE READING
