Encyclopedia > Dorsal root ganglion
This is a dorsal root ganglion (DRG) from a chicken embryo (around stage of day 7) after incubation overnight in NGF growth medium stained with anti-neurofilament antibody. Axons growing out of the ganglion are visible.

In anatomy and neurology, the dorsal root ganglion is a nodule on a dorsal root that contains cell bodies of neurons in afferent spinal nerves. All of the axons in the dorsal root convey somatosensory information, bringing sensory information into the brain and spinal cord. These neurons are of the unipolar type, meaning they have only one projection. The dorsal root ganglia lies along the vertebral columna by your spine. The dorsal root ganglia develop in the embryo from neural crest cells.
