Nerve terminals of unknown origin at the previously denervated neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) of the feline intrinsic laryngeal muscles were investigated. Until 3 weeks after the transection of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN), no axons were observed in the Büngner's bands and the NMJ, accompanied by a marked decrease of autonomic nerves around the blood vessels. At 5-6 weeks nerve varicosities labeled by 5-hydroxydopamine (5-OHDA) were observed in the Büngner's bands together with an… CONTINUE READING
