FIGURE 6.6

Receptive field sizes for NST neurons and chorda tympani fibers (CT) in fetal sheep, perinatal sheep, and lambs. Data points are mean (± SEM) field sizes. NST field sizes are larger than CT fields and NST field sizes increase significantly with age. (From Vogt, M. B. and Mistretta, C. M., J. Neurosci., 10, 3148, 1990.
