We have applied stereological methods to estimate the number and perikaryal size of primary sensory neurons in celloidin-embedded trigeminal ganglia of male albino rats, specifically looking for inter-individual and side variability. The mean total number of neurons per ganglion was 35,300, with a moderate variability among ganglia. On average, 66% of the neurons were classified as A-type and 34% as B-type. Although for individual cases there could be notable side differences in the number of… CONTINUE READING
