ganglia, invertebratemedical dictionary

Clusters of neuronal cell bodies in invertebrates. Invertebrate ganglia may also contain neuronal processes and non-neuronal supporting cells. Many invertebrate ganglia are favourable subjects for research because they have small numbers of functional neuronal types which can be identified from one animal to another.
