Volume 91 Issue 3 May 1982 pp 225-234
Microanatomical studies on the 7th abdominal ganglion of the scorpion were carried out by histological methods. The ganglion revealed a total of approximately 2000 nuclei, most of them belonging to medium-sized cells. The connective and peripheral nerves revealed fibres of varying number in each, with fibres of 3 μm contributing largely to the total content. The fibres included the axons of motor, sensory and interneurons.
