An intracellular HRP-study of cat tensor tympani motoneurons

  title={An intracellular HRP-study of cat tensor tympani motoneurons},
  author={Eckhard Friauf and Robert 5. Baker},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
The morphology of single tensor tympani motoneurons was investigated following antidromic identification and intracellular injection of horseradish peroxidase. Eight motoneurons were selected for complete reconstruction and quantitative analysis. The mean size of tensor tympani somata (26.3±1.8 μm) make this parvocellular cluster of motoneurons below the trigeminal motor nucleus a population of the smallest cranial motoneurons yet described. Axons emerged from either the soma or a primary… CONTINUE READING
