Stellate ganglion (SG) neurons provide the main sympathetic innervation to the heart and help to regulate cardiac function. The purpose of this study was to determine if ultrasound imaging could be employed to retrograde label rat SG neurons innervating the heart without employing thoracotomy. In addition, electrophysiological experiments were performed to… CONTINUE READING
