3). Here the neuronal activity is distributed by numerous collaterals to different levels of the sympathetic trunk, so that one preganglionic fiber may reach up to 16 postganglionic neurons. The collaterals of fibers originating in the upper thoracic part are mainly cranial oriented, whereas those from fibers originating in the lower thoracic, as well as in the lumbar part of the spinal cord, are mainly caudal oriented (Schliack & Schiffter, 1979). In spite of the fact that neuronal activity is widely distributed, which is typical for the sympathetic as compared to the parasympathetic system, the organization within the sympathetic nervous system is mainly segment-oriented.

The spinal sympathetic nerves, which descend in the anterolateral part of the spinal cord near the pyramidal tract (Sect. 2), are switched over in the lateral horn and leave the spinal cord via its ventral root together with the motoric fibers, traveling via the white communicating ramus to the sympathetic trunk (Fig. 3).
