Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons may give origin to ascending branches that terminate in the dorsal column nuclei (DCN); uncertainties still exist with regard to the proportion of these neurons in different DRGs and to the type of these neurons. The percentage and size of neurons that project to the DCN were determined in a large number of DRGs by means of the retrograde transport of colloidal gold-labeled wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to enzymatically inactive horseradish peroxidase… CONTINUE READING
