The morphological and physiological features of the rabbit vagus nerve were studied at different ages after birth. The total fibre count is about 37,500 of which at birth 1-2% and in the adult animal approximately 10% are myelinated. In the postnatal period the cross-sectional area of the vagus grows to 5 times its perinatal size due to an increase of endoneural collagen, fibre growth and myelinization. The myelinization is most pronounced in the first 2 weeks after birth, axonal growth is… CONTINUE READING
