Preganglionic axons arising from different levels of the mammalian spinal cord make preferential connexions with different classes of superior cervical ganglion cells (Langley, 1892, 1900; Njå & Purves, 1977a). For example, preganglionic axons from the first thoracic segment (T1) make relatively strong connexions with ganglion cells activating end-organs of the eye; conversely, axons arising from T4 selectively innervate ganglion cells projecting to the ear. In the present work we have asked… CONTINUE READING
