After horseradish peroxidase conjugated to wheat germ agglutinin (WGA-HRP) was injected into the prepositus in squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus), the largest populations of retrogradely labeled neurons were found in the vestibular nuclei, the contralateral perihypoglossal nuclei, and the medullary and pontine… CONTINUE READING
