I am just wondering what the difference between pre and paravertebral ganglia is.
Would it be fair to say that in the sympathetic ANS, prevertebral ganglia are when a pre-ganglionic nerve forms a synapse with a post-ganglionic nerve anterior to the verebral column whereas paravertebral ganglia have their pre and post ganglionic synapses lying on either side of the vertebral column?

Thanks

The paravertebral ganglia are the ones in the sympathetic chain. The prevertebral ones are sympathetic ganglia that are outside of the sympathetic chain and closer to the site of innervation.
