Muscle Receptors: Content Of Some Of The Extrinsic And Intrinsic Muscles Of The Larynx In The Bonnet Monkey (Macaca Radiata)
Published 1989 · Biology, Medicine
The number of muscle receptors and in particular the muscle spindle content of some of the intrinsic and extrinsic laryngeal muscles was evaluated, using bonnet monkeys (Macaca radiata). The technique of Barker and Ip [J. Physiol. (Lond) 169:73–74, 1963] was used to stain the muscle receptors. The results indicate that the intrinsic laryngeal muscles were devoid of muscle spindles. The extrinsic laryngeal muscles that were examined contain muscle spindles, though their density is less than that reported in the spindle‐rich muscles like the rotators of the head and some of the intrinsic muscles of the hand (Cooper in: Structure and Function of Muscle, Vol. I, G.H. Bourne, ed, Academic Press, New York and London, 1960).
