    • Abstract


      Effects of the three ganglionic extracts viz., cerebral, pleuropedal and visceral ganglia from active and aestivated snails on glutamate dehydrogenase activity in the foot and digestive gland of activePila globosa were studied. The activation with cerebral ganglia was less when compared with visceral and pleuropedal ganglia in foot but in case of digestive gland, the activation reached with cerebral ganglia extract surpassed all other ganglionic effects. The significance of these findings was discussed.
