Cite article:- isaac b. (2023). GANGLION CELLS IN THE LATERAL CRICOARYTENOID MUSCLE OF THE NORMAL ADULT RAT. A LIGHT MICROSCOPIC STUDY. Indian Journal of Animal Research. 47(1): 87-88. doi: .
The innervation of the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle was examined using light microscopy. Some ganglion cells are considered to enter the muscle, accompanied  by branched nerves. These findings suggest that, in the rat lateral cricoarytenoid muscle, intramuscular ganglion cells exist and may be involved in innervating and contracting smooth  muscle cells of the arterioles, thus regulating the blood flow or intravascular pressure.
