Light microscopy of a nerve ganglion. Peripheral ganglia are clusters of nerve cell bodies positioned like relay stations between nerve fibres. Ganglia receive impulses from incoming nerves and then amplify these signals by transmitting a greater number of nerve fibres to a target tissue or organ. These ganglia are an essential part of the autonomic nervous system. Magnification x400 when printed at 10 cm.
