Ganglia autonomic

Ganglia, autonomic

Clusters of neurons and their processes in the autonomic nervous system. In the autonomic ganglia, the preganglionic fibres from the central nervous system synapse onto the neurons whose axons are the postganglionic fibres innervating target organs. The ganglia also contain intrinsic neurons and supporting cells and preganglionic fibres passing through to other ganglia.
