  • Abstract:

    The arrangement of the brain and peripheral nerves in Ornithodoros savignyi (Audouin) is similar to that of other argasid and ixodid ticks. Histological studies, using a specialized staining technique (aldehyde fuchsin), have shown 15 groups of neurosecretory cells in the cortex of the brain.
