Abstract

Innervation of the γ straddler vibrissa and distribution of individual γ vibrissal sensory nerve fibers within infraorbital nerve branches were investigated in adult rats. In the close vicinity (2 mm) of the whisker-pad, one-fifth of the nerve fibers innervating the γ vibrissa were still located in nerves to neighboring (β, Δ, C1, and D1) whiskers, while one-tenth of the innervating fibers were placed in nerves of more distant sinus hairs. This convergence of γ vibrissal sensory nerve fibers to single vibrissa from neighboring nerves is suggested to be a consequence of overlapping vibrissal representation in the Gasserian ganglion.
