The morphology of functionally identified single axons of mesencephalic trigeminal neurons was studied in the cat by the method of intra-axonal injection of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Each axon can be divided into united (U), peripheral (P) and central branches (C). The united axon (U) descends from its soma within the tract of the trigeminal mesencephalic nucleus to the dorsal aspect of the trigeminal motor nucleus (Vmo), where it splits into peripheral and descending central branches with… CONTINUE READING
