Abstract

Catecholamine (CA) varicosities have been observed within the dorsal root ganglion and spinal ventral roots of the cat at all spinal levels. There was no apparent change in either appearance or numbers of these CA varicosities following spinal transection or distal spinal root lesion. It is suggested that the source of CA innervation of these areas is sympathetic accompanying transdural blood vessels.
