Bio Ch6 Nerves and Ganglia

Postby vgp1993 » Fri May 11, 2018 3:18 pm

Hi,

I was hoping for some clarification on this-

Should the actual structures of all nerves and ganglia be considered parts of the PNS that just have connections to the CNS, or are some of them actually housed within the CNS?


Thanks!

We generally consider ganglia to be parts of the PNS that are adjacent to the CNS. A spinal ganglia, for instance, is located along the spinal cord, but is not actually a part of the spinal cord. Hopefully that helps!
