The anterograde projections of the motorcortical tongue area to the hypoglossal nucleus and neighbouring structures were studied in the rhesus monkey, squirrel monkey, saddle-back tamarin and tree shrew. Biotin dextranamine served as tracer. Direct projections into the hypoglossal nucleus were only found in the rhesus monkey and squirrel monkey. All four(More)
In altogether seven tree shrews, Tupaia belangeri, the anterograde projections of the motorcortical tongue area were investigated as part of a larger comparative study. Identification of the tongue area was carried out by electrical brain stimulation. Three different tracers were used: biotin-conjugated dextranamine (BDA), Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin(More)
In the New World monkey Saguinus fuscicollis, the anterograde projections of the motorcortical tongue area were studied. Three animals were analyzed. In two, biotin dextran amine was used as tracer; in the third, Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin was used. Identification of the tongue area was carried out by electrical brain stimulation.

1. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) represents the major impediment to successful delivery of therapeutic agents to target tissue within the central nervous system. Intracarotid alkylglycerols have been shown to increase the transfer of chemotherapeutics across the BBB. 2. We investigated the spatial distribution of intracarotid fluorescein sodium and(More)
