Fused, paired ganglia and the nerves that run between them make up the central nervous system (Fig. 14). In the head, the brain, which is dorsal to the alimentary canal, has evolved from at least 3 primitive ganglia and receives input from the sensory organs (antennae, compound eyes and ocelli) on the head as well as from the rest of the central nervous system. A pair of bilateral nerves provides continuity between the brain and the subesophageal ganglion, located ventral to the esophagus. The subesophageal ganglion receives sensory input from, and provides motor output to, the mouthparts and is connected via the paired ventral nerve cord to a chain of ganglia that runs along the ventral midline of the body.
