Overview Of The Peripheral Nervous System

The peripheral nervous system arises from specialized cells (neural crest cells) located along the lateral edges of the neural plate (see Fig. 1). These cells bud off and become separated from the neural tube as it forms. Some groups of neural crest cells migrate to form a linear array of dorsal root ganglia located adjacent to the lateral borders of the spinal cord. These cells function as sensory
