To provide information on the glutamatergic synapses on the trigeminal motoneurons, which may be important for understanding the mechanism of control of jaw movements, we investigated the distribution of vesicular glutamate transporter (VGLUT)1-immunopositive (+) and VGLUT2 + axon terminals (boutons) on the rat jaw-closing (JC) and jaw-opening (JO) motoneurons, and their morphological determinants of synaptic strength by retrograde tracing, electron microscopic immunohistochemistry, and… CONTINUE READING
