Sensory neuron cell bodies in the Dorsal Root Ganglion provide axons that link peripheral sense organs to the central nervous system. These neurons are generally believed to be isolated by glial cells and to lack direct neuron-to-neuron signaling. We show that a sub-set of DRG neurons, that abut closely and are separated by a single common glial cell, exhibit slow transmission. This signaling may play a role in sensory processing or contribute to ganglion trophic modulation or development.
