Nerve terminal alterations induced by superior cervical ganglionectomy and pterygopalatine ganglion lesions, and acinus cell alterations induced by the latter operation and by greater petrosal neurectomy, established that a majority of interstitial and all parenchymal nerve terminals of the lacrimal gland in monkeys were parasympathetic. These were shown to originate from neurones of the pterygopalatine ganglion. A minority of interstitial terminals were sympathetic and were distinguished from… CONTINUE READING
