These are the cardiac, solar, and hypogastric plexuses. The great cardiac plexus is situated opposite tho third dorsal vertebra, at the point whero the bronchial tubes branch off from the windpipe. It is formed by the union of the middle and inferior cardiac nerves, which, in turn, are formed by the convergence and union of fibres from tho cervical ganglia. The great cardiac plexus also receives fibres from the first thoracic ganglion, the pneumogastric i Also called the foramen lacerum postering. 1 A muscle at the posterior part of the neck and shoulder which elevates the shoulder, depresses it, or carries it back, according as one or other set of fibres is contracted. and the hypoglossal nerves--tenth and twelfth pairs cranial nerves.

From the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth, and sometimes the tenth, thoracic gangliai branches start out, descending inwards and uniting into a single trunk to form what is called the great splanchnic nervo. It enters the abdomen, passes behind the stomach, and divides into several branches which enter the semilunar ganglion. Thence numerous filaments emerge to form the great solar plexus, which is situated on the vertebral column, the aorta, and the pillars of the diaphragm.
