Transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase--wheat germ agglutinin conjugate was used to study the pattern of termination of somatic afferent fibers innervating the masseter muscle within the trigeminal sensory nuclear complex (TSNC) of the cat. The central processes of the masseteric nerve terminated in the caudal third of the pars interpolaris, and laminae I/V through the caudal two-thirds of caudalis and rostral parts of the C1 spinal cord segment. The functional significance of the… CONTINUE READING
