This study was designed to identify the location of neurons giving rise to fibers innervating the posterior fossa dura in the cat using horseradish peroxidase (HRP, Sigma, Type VI). Investigations since the 19th century have implicated innervation by cranial nerves V, VII, IX, X and XII and the upper cervical nerves, C1-3. The meninges of the posterior fossa of 14 cats was exposed using one of three surgical approaches: (1) a suboccipital craniectomy and C1 laminectomy, (2) a parieto-occipital… 
Central brainstem projections of the superior vagal ganglion of the cat
TLDR
The central projections of the cat superior vagal (jugular) ganglion (SVG) cells were determined using anterograde transport of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) and this is the first report describing central vagal afferent terminations following injection of current axonal tract tracing substances into the isolated superior vagina.
Non-Trigeminal Nociceptive Innervation of the Posterior Dura: Implications to Occipital Headache
TLDR
The current study shows that the posterior dura overlying the cerebellum is innervated by cervicovascular neurons in C2 DRG whose axons reach the posteriorDura through multiple intracranial and extracranial pathways, and sensitization of central cervicvascular neurons from the posteriordura can result in hyper-responsiveness to stimulation of neck muscles.
Sympathetic innervation of the supratentorial dura mater of the rat
TLDR
The identification of a robust sympathetic plexus and prominent mast cell population associated with a dura mater that also receives significant sensory projections from the trigeminal system raises interest regarding the functional interactions of these elements.
Axon diameters and intradural trajectories of the dural innervation in the rat
TLDR
Anatomical methods were used to examine in greater detail the axonal trajectories within the dura, as well as theAxonal size distribution of the dural innervation, to characterize the sensory responses of primary afferent nociceptors that innervate the intracranial dura.
Innervation of the Cerebral Dura Mater
The trigemino-cardiac reflex during Onyx embolization for dural arteriovenous fistula may be caused by mechanical or chemical stimulus to the terminals of the unencapsulated Ruffini-like receptors
The innervation of the cranial dura mater: neurosurgical case correlates and a review of the literature.
TLDR
The finding is that the posterior part of the falx cerebri, tentorium cerebelli, and the dura mater along the middle cranial fossa floor are heavily innervated and most likely cause intense pain by their manipulation, which should therefore be avoided, if possible, during surgical procedures.
Neuronal pathways to the rat middle meningeal artery revealed by retrograde tracing and immunocytochemistry.
TLDR
The findings indicate that several ganglia project to the middle meningeal artery of the rat and that many neuropeptides are involved in vasomotor control and in mediation of afferent information.
CHAPTER 29 – Trigeminal Sensory System
TLDR
This chapter addresses the unique anatomy of the pathway for facial sensations, involving the trigeminal ganglion and its associated nuclei within the brainstem, and discusses the innervation of specialized cranial structures such as the teeth, tongue, meninges, cornea, conjunctiva, and oral and nasal mucosa.
Distribution of fos-like immunoreactivity in the medullary and upper cervical dorsal horn produced by stimulation of dural blood vessels in the rat
TLDR
The c-fos mapping technique was used in order to investigate possible differences in the distribution of central neurons activated by afferent pathways from cutaneous and deep tissues that may be related to the differing quality of the sensations they evoke.

TLDR
The innervation of the meninges and blood vessels of the central nervous system in the human fetus is studied in an attempt to resolve some of the controversies that exist in this area.
Trigeminal projections to supratentorial pial and dural blood vessels in cats demonstrated by horseradish peroxidase histochemistry
TLDR
HRP and HRP conjugated to wheat germ agglutinin were applied to the pial and dural arteries and sinuses of 33 cats to support the concept that supratentorial vascular structures receive afferent nervous projections from trigeminal neurons.
The sensory representation of the dura mater in the trigeminal ganglion of the cat
TLDR
The representation of the dura mater in the trigeminal ganglion was examined in the cat using the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) method and labelled cells were smaller than the average ganglions cell.

The central distributions of gustatory and nongustatory branches of cranial nerves V, VII, IX, and X were examined after application of horseradish peroxidase to the cut nerve. The nerves conveying
Organization of HRP‐labeled trigeminal mandibular, primary afferent neurons in the rat
TLDR
Components of the mandibular projection to the TBNC were organized topographically in at least some portion of all of its three dimen‐sions, particularly with respect to the rostrocaudal intradivisional lamination in caudalis and the cervical dorsal horn.
SOMATOTOPIC ORGANIZATION OF TRIGEMINAL-GANGLION NEURONES.
TLDR
Whether the distribution of neurones is random or orderly with respect to their peripheral receptive fields in the trigeminal ganglion is investigated to determine.

TLDR
The central projections of five peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve were investigated by the method of transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase and it was concluded that the cornea and facial skin regions of the cat are represented nonuniformly along the rostrocaudal length of the TBNC.

TLDR
A crucial experiment in the laboratory of neurology of the Boston City Hospital indicated that the efferent pathway for vasodilatation of cerebral arteries would be found in the facial nerve, and it was concluded that the pathway must leave the facial at the geniculate ganglion.
