Abstract

Male reproductive behavior has a complex neural organisation. The penile erection and ejaculation require the integration and proper sequencing of somatic, sympathetic, and parasympathetic innervation (Johnson and Halata, 1991). In the present poster we try to answer two questions: 1. which type of sensory nerve endings occur and 2. how they are distributed. We have concentrated on the sensory innervation of the glans penis.
