    For some reason I just can't seem to get which are prevertebral and which are paravertebral ganglia in the sympathetic system, and what the difference between them is, and how they relate to the sympathetic chains. Could anyone give me an explanation that might help me out?

    The paravertebral ganglia are the ones that run alongside the vertebral column as in the sympathetic chain. The prevertebral ganglia are the ones that lie outwith the sympathetic chain nearer the organs of supply and generally supplied by splanchnic nerves, like the coeliac ganglion.
