In the White Sea bryozoans Arctonula arctica, the structure of the nervous system and distribution of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and FMRF-amide were studied for the first time using immunohistochemical methods and confocal scanning microscopy. The neurotransmitters studied have been actively involved into the integrative processes, gut functioning, and regulation of motion activity. In avicularia, 5-HT and FMRF-amide receptors are capable of performing the same functions, except for participation in the gut functioning, because they have no digestive system.
