Adult central complex

Name: Adult central complex
Description: A midline crossing complex of 5 synaptic neuropil domains: the ellipsoid body, the fan-shaped body, the paired noduli, the bulb (lateral triangle), and the protocerebral bridge. It is closely associated with another paired synaptic neuropil domain, the lateral accessory lobe. It lies in the middle of the brain between the pedunculi of the mushroom bodies and is bounded ventrally by the esophagus, dorsally by the pars intercerebralis and laterally by the antenno-glomerular tracts.
Synonym(s): adult central body complex
Is part of: supraesophageal ganglion, adult protocerebrum

CommentSome authors' use of the term 'central body' excludes the protocerebral bridge, some usage also excludes the noduli, some exclude the lateral triangles, and historically it has been used to refer to the fan-shaped body alone (Hanesch et al., 1989).
