The occurrence of unmyelinated axons was examined ultrastructurally in rat molar and incisor root pulps of normal rats, of neonatally capsaicin-treated rats, of rats subjected to neonatal capsaicin treatment followed by resection of the superior cervical ganglion and of sympathectomized but otherwise normal rats. Following capsaicin treatment the occurrence of unmyelinated pulpal axons was slightly subnormal. Sympathectomy was largely without effect on the population of unmyelinated axons in… CONTINUE READING
