The cytoarchitecture of the superior cervical ganglion of the common tree shrew was investigated by scanning electron microscopy using the vascular cast technique in conjunction with digestion by collagenase-hyaluronidase/HC1. The main cellular constituents were found to be multipolar neurons that were densely distributed throughout the ganglion. These neurons were covered with a smooth cytoplasmic sheath of satellite cells. After the removal of this sheath by digestion of increased duration, the blebs or knobs on the neuronal surfaces became evident. A meshwork of nerve fibers over the surface of neurons was also observed.
