The cranial components and central terminations of the sensory nerves supplying the concave surface of the puppy's pinna, namely, the rostral, middle and caudal internal auricular nerves (RIAN, MIAN and CIAN) were investigated using horseradish peroxidase retrograde and transganglionic labelling techniques. All the 3 internal auricular nerves received contributions from the vagus. The RIAN received additional fibres from the trigeminal nerve while the MIAN and CIAN contained fibres derived from… 

Somatotopy in the Medullary Dorsal Horn As a Basis for Orofacial Reflex Behavior

The somatotopy of the trigeminocervical complex of the rat was defined as a basis for describing circuitry for reflex behaviors directed through the facial motor nucleus. Thus, transganglionic

The anatomical basis for transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation

The neuroanatomy of the ABVN is explored with reference to clinical surveys examining Arnold’s reflex, cadaveric studies, fMRI studies, electrophysiological studies, acupuncture studies, retrograde tracing studies, and studies measuring changes in autonomic parameters in response to auricular tVNS.

Trigeminal, Visceral and Vestibular Inputs May Improve Cognitive Functions by Acting through the Locus Coeruleus and the Ascending Reticular Activating System: A New Hypothesis

The trigeminal, visceral and vestibular control of ARAS/LC activity may explain why these input signals affect sensorimotor and cognitive functions which are not directly related to their specific informational content and are effective in relieving the symptoms of some brain pathologies, thus prompting peripheral activation of these input systems as a complementary approach for the treatment of cognitive impairments and neurodegenerative disorders.

Transcutaneous VNS (tVNS) of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve is suggested to be an alternative access path to the same neuronal network without invasiveness and clinical trials in patients address safety and performance of tVNS and provide evidence for application in drug-resistant epilepsy.

Anatomy and Anaesthesia of the Equine External Ear Canal

Landmarks for performing a complete and reliable anaesthesia of the external ear canal were established, and the simulated anaesthesia with methylene blue injection was evaluated as successful in all ten cases.

Description of a new approach for great auricular and auriculotemporal nerve blocks: A cadaveric study in foxes and dogs

It is suggested that it is feasible to achieve a block of the auricular nerves, based on anatomical landmarks, without concurrently affecting the facial nerve.

The spatial and segmental innervation of somatic acupoint - a study of canine Shen-Shu point (BL-23).

The data provide solid evidence that sensory innervation to a somatic acupoint is confined to a spinal segment and spatially organized, and it is speculated that to cause a maximum effect, the centripetally transmitted signal from needling an acupunctural signal is spatio-segmental and divergently amplified.

The effects of non-invasive neuromodulation on autonomic nervous system function in humans

These techniques may be tailored to the needs of individual patients to shift cardiovascular autonomic function towards either parasympathetic (tVNS) or sympathetic (tDCS) predominance.



Corneal and periocular representation within the trigeminal sensory complex in the cat studied with transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase

The central projections of afferent fibers from the cornea, and the infraorbital, infratrochlear, frontal, lacrimal and auriculotemporal nerves were investigated by means of the transganglionic

An autoradiographic examination of the central distribution of the trigeminal, facial, glossopharyngeal, and vagal nerves in the monkey

The central distributions of primary afferent axons in cranial nerves V, VII, IX, and X have been re‐examined autoradiographically after 3H‐proline injections into their peripheral ganglia to suggest that trigeminal fibers of the ophthalmic and mandibular branches enter the ventrolateral part of the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST).

Oral and facial representation within the medullary and upper cervical dorsal horns in the cat

Transganglionic transport of HRP was used to study the patterns of termination of somatic afferent fibers innervating oral and facial structures within the trigeminal nucleus caudalis and upper

Organization of HRP‐labeled trigeminal mandibular, primary afferent neurons in the rat

Components of the mandibular projection to the TBNC were organized topographically in at least some portion of all of its three dimen‐sions, particularly with respect to the rostrocaudal intradivisional lamination in caudalis and the cervical dorsal horn.

The trigeminal, facial, vagal, and glossopharyngeal nerves in the monkey. Afferent connections.

The Nauta-Gygax technique was selected because it demonstrates degenerating nonmyelinated as well as myelinated axons and because it had not been used to trace the entering afferents of VII, IX and X in the monkey.

Electrophysiologic studies of the cutaneous nerves of the head of the dog.

The cutaneous nerves of the head of the dog were investigated in 16 barbiturate-anesthetized dogs. The electrophysiologic demonstration of afferent impulses in a given cutaneous nerve to the movement
