  • The peduncle lobe of Octopus, a centre concerned with regulating motor behaviour primarily on the basis of visual cues, though it also receives a “labyrinthine” or statocyst input, has been examined for the first time in the electron microsope. In the lower part of the lobe, the basal zone, there are large “motor” cells up to 20 μm across with a rounded, pale nucleus and a large perikaryon; there are also smaller cells, 4‐10 μm in diameter with a dark irregularly‐shaped nucleus. The latter… CONTINUE READING
