SummaryThe radial nerve cords of a number of different species of echinoids and asteroids have been examined with the electron microscope. They have been shown to consist of tracts of small naked axons with discrete regions of neuropile. Synapses within these areas of neuropile have been described and their significance discussed. A careful examination has failed to reveal any connections between the ectoneural nerve and the mesodermal nerves and muscles. Synapses across the connective tissue… Expand
