NeuroFIG 32: Cephalic sheath cells envelop the synaptic neuropil.
Schematic rendition of the morphology and neighborhoods of the CEPshVL. The structures are traced from actual TEM sections. (Top panel) Cell extensions around the NR and VNC. (Arrows with numbers) Section levels in panels 1–8. The CEPshVL cell body is anterior and ventral to the NR. The anterior process travels within the ventral labial process bundle. The thin, posterior, sheet-like process extends among the nervous tissue, hypodermis, and muscle. (Gray ovals) Nuclei.
