Endogenous opioids modulate neuronal survival in the developing avian ciliary ganglion. J Neurosci 1991;11:3705-3717.
(5) This topographic order reverses along the intra-cranial course of the nerve, since axons innervating the LPS and SR occupy its superior division inside the orbit, while its (larger) inferior intra-orbital branch carries the other axons, including those to the ciliary ganglion. Indeed, there is evidence that the parasympathetic axons move gradually around the superficial margin of the nerve from superior to medial to inferior between the midbrain and the orbital cavity.
