Rohon-Beard neurones show substance P-like immunoactivity in their somas and in their centrally projecting axons. Peripherally, the morphology of their free nerve endings within the trunk skin has been shown using horseradish peroxidase staining. The excitation of Rohon-Beard neurones by natural and electrical stimulation of the skin has been examined using intracellular micro-electrodes in the late embryo of Xenopus laevis. Rohon-Beard cells are sensitive to transient, local indentation of the… CONTINUE READING
