DESCRIPTION

The processes of PLN's run closely associated with those of PLM's in the posterior half of the animal. At midbody, they join the ventral sublateral cords via bilateral, short ventrally directed commissures. Anteriorly, they enter the ventral cord via amphidial commissures. These neurons are postembryonically born.

Functions: Unknown.

Receptor expression: Express the dopamine receptor DOP-1 (Tsalik E. L. et al, 2003).
