Selective reinnervation of somatotopically appropriate muscles after facial nerve transection and regeneration in the neonatal rat.

Abstract

The organization of the facial motor nucleus (FMN) has been examined after transection and regeneration of the facial nerve (FN) in neonatal and adult rats. In one series of experiments, horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was applied bilaterally to the superior or inferior buccal ramus 5 months after neonatal FN transection. In another series of experiments… (More)
