Dewlap extension is a characteristic component of inter- and intraspecific displays of Anolis lizards. Dewlap extension is accomplished by the contraction of ceratohyoid muscles associated with the hyoid apparatus. Retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was used to investigate the brainstem origins of efferent fibers to the ceratohyoid muscles in Anolis equestris. Following application of HRP to the ceratohyoid muscle or to its nerve supply on one side of the throat, large… Expand
