 Make that an open discussion on the list, no "under cover posting" if
possible, please! :)
> Hello everyone,

> I am studying the peripheral sensory innervation of bat wings. As a first
> step, I would like to demonstrate the innervation pattern on the different
> parts of the wing membrane (a whole mount of the wing?). Second, I would
> like to demonstrate the mechanoreceptor make-up of the tiny hairs on the
> wing membrane.
> Bat wings are highly elastic, with numerous folds, a thickness of about
> 35-45 microns (in the species I study), a network of thin collagen bundles,
> and pigmented superficial epidermal layers.
> I could provide more information if required.
> Hoping to hear back from the members.
> Thank you.
