The neurosecretory system of the centipede, Lithobius, has been fully described (Scheffel, 1961). It appears to secrete two hormones, one in­ hibiting and one possibly accelerating release of a moult-promoting hormone. c. that secrete PTH in the same part of the insect brain. c. of Insecta.

In the adrenal medulla (b) the postganglionic neuron is transformed into, or replaced by, a cell that also secretes adrenaline but in sufficiently increased amounts to be effective when passed into the general circulation, which can then distribute it to a number of target cells, instead of only to one.
