The sensitive innervation of thè ostrich's nasal mucosa, through impregnative gold chloride methods, was investigated. The autonomy innervation, constituted by ganglion cells placed along thè course of nerve trunks was particularly represented in thè respiratory tract of thè nasal cavity. The somatic nerve component, composed by free and capsulated endings, was especially distributed in thè vestibular district. The nerve corpuscles were morphologically classified as Pacini, Pacini-like, Golgi-Mazzoni and Herbst. Further investigations must be expected to attribute an effective functional role particularly to this last nerve component.

Abstract

The sensitive innervation of thè ostrich's nasal mucosa, through impregnative gold chloride methods, was investigated. The autonomy innervation, constituted by ganglion cells placed along thè course of nerve trunks was particularly represented in thè respiratory tract of thè nasal cavity. The somatic nerve component, composed by free and capsulated endings, was especially distributed in thè vestibular district. The nerve corpuscles were morphologically classified as Pacini, Pacini-like, Golgi-Mazzoni and Herbst. Further investigations must be expected to attribute an effective functional role particularly to this last nerve component.
