In this image you can appreciate a dorsal root ganglia (DRG) from the mouse spinal cord. DRGs are clusters of neurons localized in the dorsal root of a spinal nerve. These neurons are responsible for some sensory modalities (for example touch); they transfer information perceived by the periphery of the body to the brain using their axons. In this picture, the neuronal axons (in yellow) spread out from the ganglia and are supported by satellite glial cells (in cyan).
