Using interspecific grafting of neural crest between quail and chick embryos, it was determined that the cardiac ganglia originate from the cranial region (somites 1-2) of the vagal neural crest (somites 1-7). Neuronal uptake of [3H]choline was used as an index of neuronal development in the chick atrium. Normal uptake was found to be quite high between Days 8 and 14 of incubation. Following extirpation of neural crest over somites 1 to 3 at stages 8 to 10, neuronal uptake in 8-day chick atrium… CONTINUE READING
