The objective of this work was to analyze the morphoquantitative behavior of neurons of the myenteric plexus, as well as the morphometry of elements of the proximal colon wall of Wistar rats (Rattus norvegicus) fed a normoproteic (22%) and a hypoproteic (8%) diet, and sacrificed at 360 days of age. To perform the neuronal evaluation, we used whole-mount(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of obesity has increased at alarming rates, particularly because of the increased consumption of high-fat diets (HFDs). The influence of HFDs on intrinsic innervation and the intestinal wall has not been fully characterized. The aim of this study was to investigate the morpho-quantitative aspects of myenteric neurons and the wall(More)
