GAB Ah neurons were detected in the buccal, cerebral, and pedal ganglia of the marine euopisthobranchs Clione limacina (Arshavsky et al., 1993) and Aplysia californica (Soinila and Mpitsos, 1991; Diaz-Rios et al., 1999) and in the nudibranchs Tritonia diomedea, Melibe leonina, Dendronotus iris, and Hermissenda crassicornis (Gunaratne et al., 2014; Gunaratne and Katz, 2016; Webber et al., 2017).

But if the light appears repeatedly just before and during shaking, this snail, called Hermissenda crassicornis, eventually learns to contract its foot when light flashes, "just as Pavlov's dog would salivate when the bell occurred, as if the smell of meat were there," Alkon says.
The goal of this study was to identify the core circadian gene products in the central nervous systems (CNS) of three nudibranchs that are common neurophysiological model systems: Hermissenda crassicornis (Eschscholtz, 1831), Melibe leonina (Gould, 1852), and Tritonia diomedea Bergh, 1894 (synonym = Tritonia tetraquetra [Pallas, 1788]), using bioinformatic analyses of recently assembled transcriptomes (Senatore et al, 2015; Tamvacakis et al, 2015).
