The goal of this study was to localize selectively the facial nerve branchial and visceral motoneurons in the rat embryo hindbrain. This was achieved by injecting dextran amines into the peripheral facial nerve on embryos maintained in an artificial cerebrospinal fluid. Sprague-Dawley rat embryos 13, 14, and 15 days old (E13, E14, E15) were obtained by cesarean section. Branchial motoneurons were first labeled at E13. They were close to the midline and migrated from rhombomere (r) 4 toward r5… CONTINUE READING
