The development of the structure and function of chemosensory apparatus of the tongue of mature and immature mammals was studied by scanning electron microscopy and in behavioral tests. Heterochronic development of receptors structures of dorsal surface of the tongue was established. At birth the chemoreceptors of body and root of the tongue were relatively(More)
The investigation of algoinductor (histaminergic) and peptidergic relations in peripheral pain reaction of taste was performed by using of different histamine liberators (applied on tongue). By fluorescence-histochemical methods it was shown that histamine in the apical portion of papilla is derived from cells of taste buds and in the basal zone--from(More)
Examination of the structural and functional organization of tactile receptor structures in the rat tongue shows that the filiform mechanosensory papillae occupying the anterior free surface of the tongue are innervated by adrenergic, cholinergic, and peptidergic fibers. The location and sources of histamine are identified. All these components are thought(More)
The food of animals and man may contain harmful components with nocigenic properties. The intake of food from the external environment is under the chemosensory control of the tongue. We have as yet no sufficiently complete idea of the peripheral mechanisms of protective reactions to pain, but there is indirect evidence of the existence of a structural and(More)
