Open Access Articles- Top Results for Deutocerebrum


Deutocerebrum is one of the three parts of an arthropodan brain.[1][2] It is the second pair of ganglia in the supraesophageal ganglion, that processes sensory information from the antennae.[3][4]

Deutocerebrum consists of two parts, the antennal lobe that receives axons of olfactory receptor neurons from the antenna and the dorsal lobe that receives mechanosensory and gustatory receptor neurons from the antenna.[4][5][6] The dorsal lobe also contains motor neurons which controls the antennal muscles.[7]
