To our knowledge, the possible effect of aging on the nerve cell population in the Gasserian ganglion of man had not yet been reported as of 1981. During a morphometric investigation of this question in collaboration with Dr. Kenneth Warren (Ball et al., 1982), it readily became apparent that large numbers of lymphoctyes were also present in the stroma of the human trigeminal (or semilunar) ganglion.
