Serotonin-positive neurons in the brain of the Japanese carpenter ant. Anti-serotonin immunostaining image (a) and three types of serotonin-positive neurons with neurites in the neuropil involved in olfactory information processing (b–d) in the brain of Japanese carpenter worker ant.
b. The soma is located in the dorso-medial region of the protocerebrum and sends neurites into the lateral horn of the ipsilateral hemisphere, the lip of the mushroom body calyx and the lateral horn of the contralateral hemisphere.
c. The soma is not specifically located, but a thick axon derived from the subesophageal ganglion sends neurites into ipsilateral antennal lobe glomeruli.
d. The soma is located in the lateral cell body group of the antennal lobe, sends neurites into approximately 10 glomeruli in the dorsal region of the antennal lobe, and the lateral horn of the protocerebrum in the ipsilateral hemisphere, and the dorso-medial region of the protocerebrum in the contralateral hemisphere.

AL, antennal lobe; SEG, subesophageal ganglion; CC, central complex; MB, mushroom body; OL, optic lobe.(Tsuji et al., 2007)
