Abstract: In the neonatal rabbit, infranodosal vagotomy destroys most of the intracorpuscular nerve endings of the pulmonary neuroepithelial bodies (NEB), while supranodosal vagotomy leaves these nerve endings intact. We conclude that NEB are mainly innervated by sensory neurons whose cell bodies lie in the nodose ganglion of the vagus nerve. These findings support the hypothesis that although secretory in nature, NEB are neuroreceptor structures.
