Abstract

Ultrastructural study was performed on inferior ganglia of the vagus in human embryos aged 7 and 8 weeks (developmental stages 18 to 23, 44 to 56 days). The growth cones are observed between the bundles of axons of the inferior ganglia of the vagus. Many primitive synapses (protosynapses) between dendritic and axonal growth cones are observed.
