INTRODUCTION: Location of motor neuron somata supplying forelimb muscles have been studied by retrograde cell degeneration technique [5],[6],[7],[8],[9] and [10] by electrophysiological method [1] and by retrograde axonal transport of horse radish peroxidase (HRP) [11],[12],[13],[2] and [14] These studies have shown the locations of motor neuron somata of major forelimb nerves in cervical enlargement of spinal cord.
