Abstract

The present study summarises the current data dealing with processes leading to the establishihg of the synaptic archtecture and connections with both the preganglionic neurons and target tissues of autonomic ganglia Starting from migrations point of the neural crest cells, the factors and mechanisms driving the development of the autonomic nervous system, axonal pathfinding and establishing of regard to their functional revalence in these processes. Forthermore, the chemical neuroanatomy and somatotopic arrangement of either the preganglionic, sympathetic or parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system are discussed from the morphologicaland functional point of view.
