Le cerveau d'Orchestia platensis Kføyer a été comparé, d'une part à celui des Amphipodes aquatiques, et, d'autre part, à celui des Isopodes terrestres et aquatiques. 1. L'auteur a attiré l'attention sur la forme compacte du cerveau chez Orchestia, en rapport avec la capsule céphalique comprimée de l'animal. 2. Les masses de glomérules dans le cerveau ressemblent beaucoup à celles de Gammarus. 3. Le pont protocérébral est faible comme chez Gammarus. 4. Le corps central n'est pas divisé, comme dans le sous-ordre des Oniscoidea. 5. Orchestia est entièrement dépourvu de lobe olfactif. 6. Comme chez tous les Amphipodes, le tractus olfactorio globularis manque chez Orchestia, ce qui est probablement en rapport avec l'absence de corpora pedunculata.
