Abstract

Aim of this study was to discover the projection area of the first cervical spinal nerve. Subcutaneous injection of wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) was done at five points of young dogs scalp and face. After two days of survival time, animals were sacrificed by perfusion through the left ventricle of the heart. Trigeminal ganglion, first and second cervical dorsal root ganglion, superior cervical ganglion, middle cervical ganglion and stellate ganglion were removed. Projection area of wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase in vestigated into above ganglions. Projection into the first cervical dorsal root ganglion and stellate ganglion was not found. This experiment is deemed valuable for the study of neuronal connection on the central nervous system.
