Fig. 1.

Cartoons of Ciona larva depicting prominent features of CNS anatomy with emphasis on neuron groups discussed in the text. The middle detail highlights internal left-right asymmetry; the smaller detail at right shows a lateral view, adding dorsal neuron groups. Abbreviations: hpf, hours post-fertilization; ant, antenna; L, left; R, right; aBV, anterior brain vesicle; pBV, posterior brain vesicle; PR, photoreceptor; RN, relay neuron; ddN, descending decussating neuron; MGIN, motor ganglion interneuron; MN, motor neuron; ACIN, ascending contralateral inhibitory neuron; V, ventral; D, dorsal; ATEN, anterior trunk epidermal neuron; AMG, ascending motor ganglion neuron
