Our present knowledge of the motor pool pattern in the hypoglossal nucleus is based mainly on cytoarchitectonic descriptions and is derived from a truly extraordinary miscellany of animals (see refs. 2, 4, 12). Therefore, it is not surprising that the hypoglossal complex of mammals is variously described as consisting of three 9 (see also ref. 4), four (see ref. 4), five 2, and even nine 12 subdivisions. Using retrograde degeneration methods, a somatotopic interpretation of the cell grouping in… CONTINUE READING
