Morphogenetic Interactions in the Development of Avian Cutaneous Sensory Receptors

  • Raymond Saxod

Abstract

The skin of birds presents an extremely complex network of nerves, containing mainly somatic and visceral sensory fibers. These fibers terminate by different types of cutaneous end-organs which have been thoroughly described: Herbst, Grandry, Merkel and Ruffini corpuscles, and free nerve terminals (for review, see Chouchkov, 1978; Saxod, 1978).
