- In spite of their accessibility and important sensory function,the nervous tissue components of human oral and vaginal mucosa and skin have beensubject to very few, if any, systematic investigations. Studies on the innervationof oral tissues have mainly focused on the dental pulp, the periodontium and thegingiva, probably because of specific clinical interest, thus largely neglectingthe mucosa. Genital studies comprise only in a few cases the vagina and when thevagina is included, morphological descriptions of the innervation are often verymeager. In cutaneous innervation, interest has been focused on certain neural endstructures, e.g. Meissner corpuscles, Mer...
