To identify the distribution of central preganglionics associated with each branch of the subdiaphragmatic vagus, the fluorescent tracer True Blue (TB) was administered intraperitoneally to rats with 4 out of 5 branches cauterized, and then, after 72 h, the animals were sacrificed for histological analysis. Each vagal branch contained the axons of a topographically distinct column of cells within the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMN). The columns representing the 4 branches with the… CONTINUE READING
