FIGURE 3.4

Anatomy of a moth (Manduca sexta) brain with emphasis on the olfactory neuropils. (A) View from dorsal (horizontal orientation with respect to body axis). (B) View from frontal (transversal orientation with respect to body axis). AL: antennal lobe; AMMC: antennal mechanosensory and motor center; AN: antennal nerve; AOTu: anterior optic tubercle; CC: central complex; LAL: lateral accessory lobe; LH: lateral horn; LbN: labial nerves; Lo: lobula; lobl: mushroom body lobelet; MBCa: mushroom body calyx; MBL: mushroom body lobes; MBPe: mushroom body pedunculus; MBYT: mushroom body Y tract; mL: mushroom body medial lobe; Oe: esophageal foramen; SOG: subesophageal ganglion; TC: tritocerebrum; vL: mushroom body vertical lobe. Only peripheral nerves known to be relevant for olfaction are shown. The major part of the optic lobes is omitted, except for the lobula. Scale bar: 200 μm. (Modified after Homberg, U., Kingan, T. G., and Hildebrand, J. G. Cell Tissue Res., 248, 1–24, 1987. With permission.)
