The motor nuclei and sensory connections of the IXth, Xth, XIth, and XIIth cranial nerves of the reptile Varanus exanthematicus were studied with the methods of anterograde degeneration and anterograde and retrograde axonal transport. The motor nuclei of nerve IX are located ventrally in the rhombencephalon and are constituted medially by the large‐celled glossopharyngeal part of the nucleus ambiguus and laterally by the small‐celled nucleus salivatorius inferior. The motor nuclei of nerve X… 
The motor complex and primary projections of the trigeminal nerve in the monitor lizard, varanus exanthematicus
The sensory projections and the motor complex of the trigeminal nerve of the reptile Varanus exanthematicus were studied with the methods of anterograde degeneration and anterograde and retrograde
Organization of the Sensory and Motor Nuclei of the Glossopharyngeal and Vagal Nerves in Lampreys
Abstract Anterograde and retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase was used to examine the afferent and efferent projections of the glossopharyngeal and vagal nerves in the lamprey, Lampetra
Primary projections and efferent cells of the VIIIth cranial nerve in the monitor lizard, Varanus exanthematicus
TLDR
The methods of anterograde and retrograde axonal transport and anterOGrade degeneration were used to study the vestibular and cochlear projections and the efferent system of this nerve in Varanus exanthematicus to describe the central relations of both the afferent and efferent components of the VIIIth cranial nerve in one reptile.
Afferent and efferent projections of the glossopharyngeal‐vagal nerve in the hagfish
TLDR
The study showed that the hagfish has only one nucleus in the vagal motor system, which contains both parasympathetic and branchiomotor neurons, which are more highly developed than those in other vertebrates.
Cobaltic lysine study of the morphology and distribution of the cranial nerve efferent neurons (motoneurons and preganglionic parasympathetic neurons) and rostral spinal motoneurons in the Japanese toad
TLDR
The morphology and distribution of the cranial nerve mot oneurons and rostral spinal motoneurons were systematically studied in the Japanese toad by retrograde labelling with cobaltic lysine complex and functional implications of the motoneuron morphology are discussed.
Gustatory and general visceral centers and their connections in the brain of adult zebrafish: a carbocyanine dye tract‐tracing study
TLDR
The present results showed that the gustatory connections of the adult zebrafish are rather similar to those reported in other cyprinids, excepting the tertiary gustatory nucleus.
Central projections of the nodose ganglion and the origin of vagal efferents in the lamb.
TLDR
The motor origins of thevagus nerve arose almost completely ipsilaterally in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus, the nucleus ambiguus, and the caudal portion of the nucleus retroambiguus situated in the lateral part of the intermediate grey at upper cervical spinal levels.
The Efferent System of Cranial Nerve Nuclei: A Comparative Neuromorphological Study
TLDR
A series of comparative neuromorphological studies investigating the dendritic arborization pattern and axonal trajectory in the frog, lizard, and rat suggests a much more delicate classification in which nine morphologically and functionally different neuron groups can be discerned.
Monoaminergic and peptidergic axonal projections to the vagal motor cell column of a teleost, the filefish Stephanolepis cirrhifer
TLDR
The results suggest that the vagal parasympathetic preganglionic neurons might receive multiple inputs of monoaminergic and peptidergic fibers involved in the regulation of the visceral organs.

Central origins of cranial nerve parasympathetic neurons in the rat
The location of central neurons that contribute preganglionic parasympathetic axons to cranial nerves VII, IX, and X in rats has been identified using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) tracting methods.
The motor nuclei and primary projections of the facial nerve in the monitor lizard Varanus exanthematicus
TLDR
From HRP applications to the various branches of the facial nerve it could be concluded that the medial cell group represents the branchiomotor nucleus and the lateral cell group the superior salivatory nucleus.
The central projections of the glossopharyngeal and vagus ganglia in the mallard, Anas platyrhynchos L.
TLDR
The converging projections from N V and N IX in “trigeminal” nuclei may reflect the functional coherence of the mechanoreceptors in bill and tongue and it is suggested that these nuclei play a role in the feeding behavior.
Brainstem projections of sensory and motor components of the vagus nerve in the rat
TLDR
HRP‐labeled perikarya, in contrast to transganglionically transported HRP in sensory terminals in the nTS, were visualized on one side only, thus indicating that motor control via the vagus nerve is exerted only by motor neurons located ipsilaterally.
An autoradiographic examination of the central distribution of the trigeminal, facial, glossopharyngeal, and vagal nerves in the monkey
TLDR
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).
