The morphology of the pudendal nerve was quantified in adult male and female rats. The sensory branch of the pudendal nerve was about three times as large in cross section in males as in females, and the motor branch was about five times as large. Electron microscopy was used to determine the ultrastructural bases of these gross size differences. Differences that were found included greater packing density of both myelinated and unmyelinated axons in females, larger myelinated and unmyelinated… CONTINUE READING
