Abstract: The composition of the cervical sympathetic trunk (CST) in the cat is still not completely understood. The present study investigates, by the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) method of tracing neuronal connections, the presence of postganglionic and sensory neurons projecting via the CST. Following sympathectomy at the midcervical level and the application of HRP crystals to the cut ends of the CST which had been isolated from the surrounding by a 1.5% solution of agar-agar, labelled neurons were seen in the superior cervical (SCH), stellate (SG), inferior vagal ganglia (IVG), and spinal ganglia C 8-T 8. The maximum number of labelled neurons were 536 in the SCG, 460 in the SG, 180 in the IVG, and 104 in spinal ganglia C 8-T 8.
