Neuroendocrine Control Mechanisms of Gametogenesis in Bivalve Molluscs Crenomytilus grayanus (Dunker) and Patinopecten yessoensis (Jay)
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.
