The nucleus ambiguus has been reported to innervate various thoracic and abdominal viscera in addition to the musculature of the upper alimentary tract. However, the literature is contradictory as to how different regions of the nucleus ambiguus innervate specific organs. Therefore, a systematic investigation of the viscerotopic organization of the nucleus ambiguus was undertaken. In 102 rats, 0.5–10.0 μl of HRP, WGA‐HRP, cholera toxin‐HRP or fluorescent tracers were injected into the IXth, Xth, and XIth cranial nerves and the major branches of the Xth as well as organs supplied by them.
