Do chitons have a brain? New evidence for diversity and complexity in the polyplacophoran central nervous system

Abstract:

Molluscs demonstrate an astonishing degree of morphological diversity, and the relationships among molluscan clades have been debated for more than a century. Molluscan nervous systems range from simple 'ladder-like' arrangements of nerve cords to the complex brains of cephalopods. Chitons (Polyplacophora) are assumed to retain many molluscan plesiomorphies, lacking neural condensation and ganglionic structure, and therefore a brain. We reconstructed three-dimensional anatomical models of the...
