Light microscopy of a sensory spinal nerve ganglion also called a dorsal root ganglion. It consists of nerve cell bodies (blue) accompanied by many small satellite or glial cells. The pink-stained tissues are myelinated nerves entering and leaving the ganglion. Sensory signals from peripheral organs including skin travel via nerves towards the spinal cord and pass through the ganglion before entering the grey matter (dorsal horn) of the spinal cord. Magnification x170 when printed at 10cm.
