The location of the motor nuclei and the projection of the primary afferent fibers of the facial nerve of the reptile Varanus exanthematicus were studied by means of the HRP method and the anterograde degeneration technique. The motor nuclei are located ventrolaterally in the rhombencephalon and are constituted by a medial cell group consisting of large, polygonal cells and a lateral cell group consisting of medium-sized, spindle-shaped, and multipolar cells. From HRP applications to the… CONTINUE READING
