The cholinergic and adrenergic structures of the heart were studied in rabbits, cats, guinea pigs and human beings by the Falck and Karnowsky-Roots method. Density of the structures was measured by the point method. Cholinergic and adrenergic innervation was well developed in the muscle of cardiac atria and in the conducting system. Adrenergic innervation predominated in the ventricular muscle. Qualitative evaluation of density of the adrenergic and cholinergic structures in the atrial and ventricular muscle showed species-related differences.
