why there is no ventral root ganglion .
Asked by | 28th Oct, 2012, 06:58: PM
The dorsal root ganglion is a nodule on the dorsal root that contains cell bodies of neurons in afferent spinal nerves.
The ventral root contains the axons of the large multipolar motor neurons. These axons originate at the cell bodies in the spinal cord and pass through the ventral root, exclusively, before entering the mixed nerve. The cell bodies of these motor neurons are located within the spinal cord and hence there is no enlargement or nodule formed.
