In the past, some investigators noted that in sensory ganglia few satellite cells are associated with small neurons, whereas they are numerous around large ones (see Scharf 1958, for a review). Only recently, however, the quantitative aspects of the relationships between nerve and satellite cells in sensory ganglia have been investigated in a more precise manner.
