Caption: Light micrograph of a normal human spinal ganglion, an aggregation of nerve cells located just outside the spinal cord at the point where it is joined by a spinal nerve. The neurone cell bodies appear as large circular bodies with a distinct, central nucleus (nucleoli within nucleus are prominently stained). Each neurone is surrounded by a layer of smaller, supporting cells called satellite cells; these are stained dark pink & appear as rings of cells surrounding the pale pink neurones. The knee-jerk reflex is one example of a movement involving a spinal ganglion. (Thin section; trichrome stain). Magnification: x160 at 35mm size. Ref: MICROCOSMOS, fig. 2.20, page 25
