CNS of nereidae?

Dear list members,

I'm trying to get an overview of the central nervous system of the nereidae, 
especially from a functional and motion control perspective. However, it does 
not seem that much work has been done on that. I'm familiar with the work of 
Lars Orrhage and the older work of D. A. Dorsett as well as the article from 
J. E. Smith on the peripheral nervous system, but that is all... Does anyone 
know of any other relevant publications? I'm particular interested in a 
functional description of the various parts of the brain and the supra-
oesophageal ganglion (which is not mentioned by Orrhage at all??). Does 
anyone know any active researchers working on the nervous system of the 
polychaetes, whose email I could get?  

Thanks in advance,
Thomas
