This study describes the distribution of the NMDA receptor subunit NR-1 and its characterization in the main ganglia of the central nervous system of the crab Neohelice granulata, including the eyestalk ganglia, central brain and thoracic ganglion. This receptor is a key component involved in memory storage in all species studied. Much of the work performed regarding memory storage in this crab indicates that the central brain is an important structure in this process and the focus of our description.
