Caption

Scorpion nervous system. Androctonus scorpion. Like all arthropods, the nervous system of an arachnid is based around a ventral nerve cord that runs along its abdomen and terminates in the sting. Nerves also branch off into the antennae, the claws, and the legs. The brain and optic nerves are also shown. This artwork is from a journal by British entomologist George Newport (1803-1854). Published in volume 133 (1843) of 'Philosophical Transactions', the journal of the Royal Society of London.
