Abstract

Following horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and cobalt (CO2+) application to the pallial nerve of two species of octopus, neurons that control various aspects of mantle behaviors were located in several lobes of the three main regions of the central brain. In the subesophageal region, cells were labeled in the anterior chromatophore, posterior chromatophore, palliovisceral, pedal and vasomotor lobes; in the superior buccal lobe of the supraesophageal region; and in the magnocellular lobe of teh periesophageal region. Localization of labeled cells in and around both the anterior and posterior chromatophore lobes suggests a modification of the idea that a single functional area is solely located in an anatomically defined brain lobe of cephalopod.
