Although rabbits have been used extensively in neurophysiological studies of the gustatory system, there is little information about the anatomical organization of taste in this species. Afferent and efferent central connections of three nerves innervating oral or laryngeal taste buds in the rabbit, including the chorda tympani (CT), the lingual-tonsillar branch of the glossopharyngeal (IX), and the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN), were traced by means of horseradish peroxidase… CONTINUE READING
