This model shows the different tissues of the tongue in a microscopic perspective with details such as papillae, taste buds, nerve supply and musculature.


The model weighs approximately 1.4 kg and the dimensions are 14.5 x 32.5 x 20 cm. The model consists of 4 segments (parts), 2 of which are enlarged in relation to the natural size of the tongue. All 4 segments are delivered together on a white stand (plastic sheet).

Anatomically, the model shows the following:



A segment showing the tissue of the tongue viewed from the dorsal side (back of the tongue) in normal size. Here you can see i.a. papillae, blood vessels, glands and tongue muscles


A segment showing papilla foliata at 10-20 times normal size. Here you can see i.a. taste buds, glands and nerves


A segment showing a taste bud at 450 times normal size. Here you can see details such as taste buds, cell types (including basal cells and intermediate cells) and nerve fibers


A segment which is a very simple overview of the sensory supply of the tongue by the cranial nerves (5th, 7th, 9th and 10th cranial nerves)
