Dietary sodium restriction instituted early in prenatal development produces physiological, anatomical, and functional changes in the gustatory system. For example, a rearrangement of the chorda tympani nerve terminal field within the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) is observed in rats sodium restricted during development. The altered pattern of the chorda tympani nerve innervation within the nucleus of the solitary tract remains even after dietary sodium is restored in the diet at… CONTINUE READING
