Abstract

Most paraneurons have either the manifest or potential tendency to be involved in neuronal chains, forming neuroparaneuronal chains. Sensory paraneurons, like visual, statoacoustic, olfactory, gustatory, and Merkel cells, are synaptically connected with sensory nerves (partly also with efferent nerves). Some bronchial para-neurons are connected with nerve fibers. Internuncial paraneurons, such as SIF cells and carotid body chief cells are naturally involved in neuron chains by some synapses.
