Scanning electron microscopic study of lingual chemoreceptor and mechanoreceptor formation in animals born in a state of maturity


Maturation of the accessory structures of the different receptors of the dorsal surface of the tongue was shown previously not to be synchronized in mammals born in an immature state and in man [2, 3]. The times of formation of populations of lingual receptor structures during postnatal ontogeny have been shown to depend on the mode of feeding of the animal… (More)
