Projection of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) afferent fibers into the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) was investigated using a fluorescent tracer in guinea pigs. High density of fluorescence was detected in the ipsilateral NTS extending from 0.5 mm caudal to 1.2 mm rostral to the obex. At coronal slices, the fluorescent granules, lines and patches were located in the interstitial, medial and dorsal regions of NTS. Fluorescence was also found in the dorsal region of contralateral… CONTINUE READING
