Sensory trigeminal innervation is a consistent feature of extraocular muscles across species, in spite of a variable occurrence of muscle spindles. We studied the histochemical properties of trigeminal ganglion (TG) cells projecting to the extraocular eye muscles to obtain more information about their function. In monkey TG neurons were retrogradely filled by tracer injections (cholera toxin subunit B; wheat-germ agglutinin) into the belly or myotendinous junction of eye muscles; one… CONTINUE READING
