NK1 receptor activation by geniohyoid primary afferents modulates parasympathetic postganglionic neuronal excitability in the rat.

Abstract

Previous studies have indicated that the geniohyoid (GH) muscle receives innervation via both the hypoglossal nerve (CNXII) and the ansa cervicalis. Our recent studies revealed that the efferent root that contributes to the ansa cervicalis is a parasympathetic pathway and contains postganglionic cell bodies. Afferent axons from the GH muscle also travel via… (More)
