Somatotopic arrangements of axon terminals of primary afferent fibers innervating follicles of the mystacial vibrissae were examined in the cat by the transganglionic horseradish peroxidase (HRP) method. Forty to 60 hours after injecting HRP into a single or a group of vibrissal follicles, transported HRP was visualized by the tetramethylbenzidine technique. HRP‐labeled axon terminals were distributed in the ventral subnucleus of the principal sensory trigeminal nucleus (ventral Vp), in the… Expand
Trigeminal projections to the nucleus submedius of the thalamus in the rat
TLDR
Results suggest that the Sm of the rat receives its orofacial afferent inputs from brainstem neurons that are localized to the caudal interpolaris and rostral caudalis in the central processing of pain. Expand
Contralateral projections of trigeminal mandibular primary afferents in the guinea pig as seen by transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase
TLDR
Transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was used to investigate contralateral projections of trigeminal mandibular fibers in the guinea pig, suggesting their involvement in the reception of mechanical stimuli and in the sensory motor reflexes of the orofacial region. Expand
Central terminations of low‐threshold mechanoreceptive afferents in the trigeminal nuclei interpolaris and caudalis of the cat
TLDR
Significant functional and morphological relationships for primary afferents in Vi and Vc are demonstrated, thus suggesting that sensory information from each of the distinct fiber or functional classes is processed in a characteristic manner in the individual nuclei. Expand
Morphologic characteristics of physiologically defined neurons in the cat trigeminal nucleus principalis
TLDR
New findings that Vp neurons could be divided into three distinct populations are provided and it is suggested that each population exerts a distinct function with respect to sensory discrimination, sensorimotor reflexes, or both. Expand
2‐DG uptake patterns related to single vibrissae during exploratory behaviors in the hamster trigeminal system
TLDR
High‐resolution, 2‐deoxyglucose (2DG) mapping and cytochrome oxidase (CO) staining is combined to determine whether the known pattern of V primary afferent projections is sufficient to deduce the functional activation of their targets during exploratory behavior. Expand
What Makes Subcortical Barrels
The spatial arrangement of the mystacial vibrissae, or whiskers, on the rodent’s face is represented in most of the trigeminal (V) neuraxis by the patterning of afferent terminals, neuronal somata,Expand
An analysis of the cyto- and myeloarchitectonic organization of trigeminal nucleus interpolaris in the rat.
TLDR
It is proposed that these cyto- and myeloarchitecturally distinct regions of Vi may largely represent functionally distinct regions, based on reported differences in the organization of afferent and efferent projections within the nucleus. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that there are large differences in the terminations of nociceptive and non‐nociception primary afferents and that Vi receives direct nocICEptive input from facial skin, and the sparse distribution of collaterals of HTM afferentS in Vi suggests that the rostral trigeminal nucleus contributes partially to sensory processing of facial pain.

TLDR
The differential laminar distribution of collateral arbors of single axons along the rostrocaudal axis distinguishes the spinal trigeminal nucleus from the spinal dorsal horn where functional types of mechanoreceptive afferents form continuous or interrupted sagittal columns of terminal arbors that do not shift dorsoventrally within segments.

A double somatotopic representation of tactile sensation within the caudal medulla oblongata was indicated, in contrast with the scheme proposed by previous investigators. Expand
