• carotid
  • It arises from the petrous ganglion, and ascends to the tympanic cavity through a small canal, the inferior tympanic canaliculus, on the under surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone on the ridge which separates the carotid canal from the jugular fossa. (wikipedia.org)
  • stimulation
  • The rate constant is depressed about 30% by treatment of the ganglion with 8.3 microng/ml of cytochalasin-B. Since these agents inhibit the release of ACh which is elicited by electrical stimulation of the ganglion, it is suggested that one action of BWGE is the stimulation of some step in the physiological mechanism involved in the release of neurotransmitters.

  • When treated with BWGE, ganglia whose stores of transmitter had been labeled by electrical stimulation in the presence of [3H]choline released ACh having uniform specific activity. (aspetjournals.org)
  • spinal
  • it contains essential gray matter that receives incoming signals from, and projects to, structures such as the cerebral cortex, the hypothalamus, the spinal cord, the cerebellum and the basal ganglia, controlling many vital functions necessary for life. (scholarpedia.org)
