    Abstract

    Small extrusions of glial cytoplasm are endocytosed by neuron cell bodies of the crayfish Procambarus. Vesicles are double walled with the external membrane issuing from the neuron and the internal one from the glia. This could be a system for the transfer of glial cytoplasmic free proteins to neurons. © 1985 Birkhäuser Verlag.
