Abstract

The organized end organs of nerves in glabrous skin of the chimpanzee, orangutan, and gibbon are similar to those of man in form and distribution but are more numerous on the soles of the feet than in man. I found cholinesterase in all the end organs of all these animals and, in the gibbon, alkaline phosphatase as well.
