Abstract

Regeneration and negative phototaxis were studied in planarians Polycelis tenuis, in which the anterior body end is fringed with many eyes. Comparative data for the same indices are given for binocular planarians Girardia tigrina. Multiple eyes regenerated gradually with a decrease in the rate of regeneration and independently from the rate of restoration of the anterior body end, where they are located. Negative phototaxis was restored independently from the total amount of regenerated eyes. It was unstable in both planarian species.
