Conference paper


The neuroendocrine system of the molluscs studied is represented by secreting neurons in visceral, cerebropleural, and pedal ganglia. In these cells, Gomori-positive inclusions have been found; the morphologic appearance and tinctorial properties of these inclusions varies throughout the year. Nerve cells containing Gomori-positive material appeared to possess no constant or strict location. The number of cells varies throughout the year. Gomori-positive inclusions have also been found in neuronal branches.
