In the snake, Natrix maura, and the turtle, Mauremys caspica, the basal processes of the ependymal cells of the subcommissural organ project toward the local blood vessels and the leptomeninges. These processes and their endings were studied using aldehyde-fuchsin (AF), periodic-acid Schiff (PAS), periodic-acid silver-methenamine (PA-SM), concanavalin A(More)
