Abstract:By using high resolution radioautography, 3H-DDT and its metabolites were localized in the neural lamella of the ganglia and interganglionic connectives of the American cockroach, Periplaneta Americana (L.) and the tobacco bud worm, Heliothis virescens (F.). Localization was ob- served along cell and mitochondrial membranes and along microtubules and neurotubules in the neuropile region of the tobacco bud worm but not in the American cockroach. No deposition of silver grains could be found in the nerve-cell body area of either insect.
