The rat vibrissal follicle-sinus complex is innervated by a deep vibrissal nerve (DVN) and several smaller fascicles traveling in the dermis [conus or superficial vibrissal nerves, (SVNs)]. The function of the SVNs is unknown, although it has been suggested in a comparative study that they form part of a diffuse, multivibrissal system. Anatomical and… CONTINUE READING
