Localization of trigeminal, spinal, and reticular neurons involved in the rat blink reflex.


Electrical stimulation of the supraorbital nerve (SO) induces eyelid closure by activation of orbicularis oculi muscle motoneurons located in the facial motor nucleus (VII). Neurons involved in brainstem central pathways implicated in rat blink reflex were localized by analyzing c-Fos protein expression after SO stimulation in conjunction with tracing… (More)
