The anterograde transport of radioactive amino acid was used to demonstrate the primary projections of the VIIIth cranial nerve in 5 leopard frogs. Projections were found to be limited to one contiguous termination field ipsilateral to the injected nerve. The most rostral projections were in the marginal cerebellar granular layer; the most caudal projections were slightly posterior to the entry of nerve X. These projections covered the dorsal, ventral, and caudal nuclei of nerve VIII that have… CONTINUE READING
