Cytoarchitectonic correlates of the vibrissae in the medullary trigeminal complex of the mouse.


Cytoarchitectonic patterns in the medullary trigeminal complex of the mouse corresponding to mystacial vibrissae are described. These patterns are found within trigeminal sub-nuclei principalis, interpolaris and caudalis. The patterns are due to differential cell packing and are homeomorphic to the arrangement of the mystacial vibrissae on the face. The cytoarchitecture is similar, but complementary, to patterns of trigeminal afferents previously described using histochemical staining methods. Neonatal cautery of groups of vibrissae produces appropriate, specific and localized cytoarchitectural changes within all 3 trigeminal sub-nuclei.
