Abstract:A preliminary study was done on the age-pigment lipofuscin content in the brains of captive Farfantepenaeus paulensis juveniles (5 months old) and wild adults (estimated age of 12-15 months).

The fluorescent images of the five most central sections of the olfactory lobe cell mass (OLCM) of e… Show more
