Using the thiocholine method of Koelle-Friedenwald, otic ganglia in mice, rats and Syrian hamsters were examined. They were singular compact structures, topographically closer connected with the maxillary artery than with the mandibular nerve. They are quite considerably differentiated, both individually and between species. The specific situation and the shape of the otic ganglion in hamster differs markedly from other rodents under investigation.
