The structure of a novel laryngeal muscle in the túngara frog (Engystomops pustulosus)

Lead Author Affiliation

Biological Sciences

Introduction

Muscular control of the larynx in frogs is known to be achieved by four pairs of muscles. Preliminary studies in our lab, however, have shown that in the túngara frog, the laryngeal dilator muscle is formed by two physically separate muscles (superficial and deep) with individual innervations.
