DIFFERENCE OF NUCLEI AND GANGLIA IN THE Nervous System. WHY IS CALLED THE BASAL GANGLIA BUT LOCATED IN THE BRAIN – CENTRAL Nervous System?
Set of trunks (body/ soma) of neurons in the central nervous system called the nucleus (nucleus). Meanwhile, the body set of neurons in the peripheral nervous system is called the ganglia (ganglion).
In the picture attached to this article, the term “nucleus” has some distinct meanings in anatomy and physiology.
- “Nucleus” (more commonly called “nucleus”) is the center of an atom, consisting of two components, protons and neutrons;
- “Nucleus” is the center of the cell, where the genetic material DNA is stored;
- “Nucleus” is central to several functions in the central nervous system.
However, there is a potentially confusing use of the term “ganglion” (ganglionic, plural is ) ganglia) for historical reasons.
In the central nervous system, there is a group of interconnected nuclei that were once called “the basal ganglia“(basal ganglia) before the term “ganglia” is widely agreed to a description of the set of nuclei of neurons in the peripheral nervous system. Some sources and textbooks have actively called this group of people “basal nuclei” (base kernels) to avoid confusion.
Above is all the knowledge to help you distinguish Human (Nucle) and ganglion (Ganglia) most detailed.
