Published Online: 23 August 2016
...Erin E. Mattson; Christopher D. Marshall Histological data from terrestrial, semiaquatic, and fully aquatic mammal vibrissa (whisker) studies indicate that follicle microstructure and innervation vary across the mystacial vibrissal array (i.e. medial microvibrissae to lateral macrovibrissae...

...Diana K. Sarko; Frank L. Rice; Roger L. Reep Mammalian tactile hairs are commonly found on specific, restricted regions of the body, but Florida manatees represent a unique exception, exhibiting follicle-sinus complexes (FSCs, also known as vibrissae or tactile hairs) on their entire body...

... of the face, and particularly the mys-tacial vibrissae, was greatly expanded in SmI. Nissl stained sections through the SmI face area revealed an unusual organization of the granule cells in layer IV. By correlating the appearance of layer IV as seen in sections perpendicular and parallel to the plane...

... of these bristles and hairs are known to be used in tactile exploration and in grasping behaviors. In the present study we characterized the microanatomical structure of the hair and bristle follicles from the nine regions of the face. All follicles had the attributes of vibrissae, including a dense connective...
