  • The complex nervous networks found throughout the mammalian gut—the enteric nervous system—are histologically, ultrastructurally, and, to some extent, functionally—similar to the central nervous system1–3. The glial cells of the small enteric ganglia are generally classified as Schwann or satellite cells, since they are found in the peripheral nervous system, possess nuclei which ultrastructurally resemble those of Schwann cells and are derived from the neural crest4,5. However, it has been… CONTINUE READING
