Abstract

Dense networks of enkephalin containing nerve terminals have been identified in mammalian sympathetic and parasympathetic ganglia (1, 12, 20–22, 25, 35). Evidence from various sources indicates that enkephalins are contained in, and released by axons that arise from neurons extrinsic to the ganglia, and that enkephalins have an inhibitory effect on ganglionic transmission (2, 12, 23, 25, 26, 30, 36, 39).
