Abstract
Although detailed morphological studies of the embryological development of the electric organ of Torpedo were made in the nineteenth century with the light microscope (1,12,18) relatively little had been done with modern techniques with this important model cholinergic system until recently, when electron microscopic surveys were carried out (7,8,17). These have confirmed the conclusion of the earlier workers that electrocytes develop from vertically orientated myotubes and have documented the differentation of the postsynaptic membrane and the onset of synaptogenesis.
