The infraorbital nerve was sectioned and the ipsilateral whisker follicles were cauterized in hamsters within 12 h of birth. Sixty to ninety days later application of HRP to the proximal stumps of the ipsilateral lingual, inferior alveolar, mylohyoid and auriculotemporal nerves resulted in increased numbers of labeled somata in trigeminal ganglion regions(More)
This study aimed to delineate the anthropometric measurements of the noses of young women of an Indian population and to compare them with the published ideals and average measurements for white women. This anthropometric survey included a volunteer sample of 100 young Indian women ages 18 to 35 years with Indian parents and no history of previous surgery(More)
