Ontogeny of retrograde labeled chemoafferent neurons in the newborn rat nodose-petrosal ganglion complex: an ex vivo preparation.

Abstract

Hypoxic chemosensitivity of the peripheral arterial chemoreceptors in the carotid body is developmentally regulated. Essential neural elements of the chemotransducing unit in the carotid body consist of the Type I cell that depolarizes and releases neurotransmitters in response to hypoxemia and the chemoafferent fibers which form synapses with Type I cells… (More)
