Abstract

A single serotonin-immunoreactive neuron in the antennal lobe (AL) of the brain of the sphinx moth Manduca sexta is present in larval, pupal, and adult stages. This neuron has a neurite that extends to the contralateral AL, where it forms sparse arborizations in each glomerulus. Other neurites from this neuron project into the ipsilateral and contralateral protocerebrum. This cell is morphologically very different from other neurons previously characterized in the adult AL. The neuron maintains the same basic profile in the adult as in the larva, although fine processes such as the arborizations within the AL neuropil appear to be restructured to conform to the larger, more anatomically differentiated regions of the adult brain.
