Retrograde transport of wheatgerm-agglutinin horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) and fluorescent tracers (true blue-TB, nuclear yellow-NY, and diamidino yellow-DY) from isolated whisker follicles was used to define the somatotopic organization of the facial (VII) motoneurons which innervate the intrinsic follicle muscles. Motoneurons supplying these muscles were restricted almost completely to the lateral (Martin and Lodge, '77) facial subnucleus and the motoneurons which innervated a given… CONTINUE READING
