Abstract

THE carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) has a palatal organ supplied by nerve fibres running into the glossopharyngeal nerve. By dissecting and isolating small strands of the nerve branches running to the palate, it has been possible to obtain records of the electric response to the application of different sapid solutions to the mucous surface of the palatal organ.
