During routine anatomical dissection of the upper extremity of a 64-year-old cadaver for educational purposes, we observed variations in the brachial plexus on each side. On the right an anomaly of cord formation was present and on the left there was a communication between the musculocutaneous nerve (MCN) and median nerve (MN). On the right side the(More)
The posterolateral sulcus (PLS) is an important surgical landmark, especially for DREZ (dorsal root entry zone) operations. The present study aimed to show the variations of the PLS using human spinal cord histological sections and report the variability in the number of dorsal rootlets of the spinal nerves in each the spinal cord segment. Further, measure(More)
An imbalance between GABAergic inhibition and glutamatergic excitation is suspected to play a role in the genesis of epileptic processes. In the present study we quantified the number of glutamate+ve neurons in the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus (MD) of genetic absence epilepsy rats from Strasbourg (GAERS) and compared these with values for normal Wistar(More)
The dorsal column tracts (fasciculus gracilis and fasciculus cuneatus) are concerned with discriminative qualities of sensation. There are controversial descriptions related to the relations of dorsal column tracts with the dorsal horn laminae in text-books. The present study aims to define the laminae of the dorsal horn of the spinal cord that contribute(More)
The GABAergic neurons of the thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN) play a critical role in the generation and control of spike-and-wave discharges (SWDs) in absence epilepsy. We have used the disector method to count the GABA+ve and GABA−ve neurons in the intermediate TRN sector of genetic absence epilepsy rats from Strasbourg (GAERS) and of Wistar rats during(More)
An imbalance of GABAergic inhibition and glutamatergic excitation is suspected to be the cause of absence epileptic seizures. Absence seizures are known to be generated in thalamocortical circuitry. In the present study we used light microscopy immunohistochemistry to quantify the density of glutamate+ve neurons at two developmental stages (P10 and P60) in(More)
