Morphological features of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-immunoreactive neurons were studied in the sensory ganglia of the vagus and thoracic nerves in 3-, 10-, 20-, 30-, 60-, 90-, and 180-day-old rats under conditions of chemically-induced deafferentation. We found that, in rats, CGRP-containing neurons appeared in both ganglia immediately after they were born and their number decreased with aging. Most of CGRP-immunoreactive neurons were small in size, i.e., up to 600 μm2. Administration of capsaicin modified age-related changes in the number of CGRP-immunopositive neurons. In the thoracic nerve ganglion, the mean square of these cells and their number substantially decreased, whereas, in the vagus nerve ganglion, positive cells were not observed.
