The gastropod nervous system in metamorphosis

Abstract

Many gastropods, including the sea hare Aplysia californica, undergo metamorphosis in passing from the larval to the juvenile phases of their life cycle. During metamorphosis, the gastropod nervous system is affected by both progressive and regressive neuronal events. In addition to this metamorphic reorganization, the nervous system appears to be centrally involved in initiating metamorphosis. We propose that gastropods not only possess temporally distinct neuronal adaptations for the specific needs of the larval and juvenile phases, but also another transient neuronal adaptation specialized to subserve the metamorphic episode.
