The ultrastructure of fibres and sensory terminals of the aortic nerve innervating the aorta between the left common carotid and left subclavian arteries was investigated in the rat. This is the region from which most baroreceptor responses are recorded electrophysiologically. The fibres of the aortic nerve enter the adventitia and separate into bundles generally containing one myelinated fibre and four or five unmyelinated fibres of various sizes. The bundles pursue a roughly helical course… CONTINUE READING
