It has been shown that glutamate-like immunoreactive axon terminals are present within the spinal trigeminal nucleus, including subnucleus caudalis. The morphology of many of these terminations is consistent with their identification as primary afferents. To establish whether primary afferent projections to subnucleus caudalis are glutamate-like immunoreactive, we injected an anterograde tract tracer into rat incisor tooth pulp, histochemically visualized this tracer within subnucleus caudalis… CONTINUE READING
