The present study examines the response of colon-projecting neurons localized in the inferior mesenteric ganglia (IMG) to axotomy in the pig animal model. In all animals (n = 8), a median laparotomy was performed under anesthesia and the retrograde tracer Fast Blue was injected into the descending colon wall. In experimental animals (n = 4), the descending(More)
The study describes for the first time the colocalization pattern of calbindin (CB) and cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) in the mammillary body (MB) and anterior thalamic nuclei (ATN) - structures connected in a topographically organized manner by the mammillothalamic tract (mtt). Immunohistochemical study was performed on fetal (E40,(More)
This study describes for the first time the distribution of the calcium-binding protein calretinin (CR) in the anterior thalamic nuclei (ATN) of the guinea pig during development. Brains from animals ranging from 40th embryonic day (E40) to 80th postnatal day (P80) were used in the study. No CR-immunoreactive (CR-ir) perikarya were present among the ATN at(More)
Our recent studies have shown that the distribution of calretinin (CR) in the anterior thalamic nuclei (ATN) changes significantly during the development of the guinea pig. The present study was designed to reveal the distribution pattern of calcium-binding proteins, i.e. calbindin (CB) and parvalbumin (PV), as well as the colocalization pattern of all(More)
The present studies were carried out on the brains of adult guinea pigs, Dunkin-Hartley strain. On the basis of preparations, they were stained according to the Nissl and the Klüver-Barrera method's; a short description of the cytoarchitectonics and the characteristics of the rubral cells were written. The red nucleus (RN) of the guinea pig is 1.2 mm in(More)
The studies were carried out on the hypothalamus of bison bonasus aged 2 and 3 months. Sections were made by means of Bagiński's technique and Nissl and Klüver-Barrera methods. Four types of neurons were distinguished in the paramamillary nuclei: nucleus supramamillaris (Sm) and nucleus tuberomammillaris pars posterior (Tmp). Type I, small and medium-size,(More)
Studies were carried out on the brains of two aurochs. The paraffin cross-sections 15 microns thick were stained according to Nissl and Klüver and Barrera methods. In regio mamillaris were described two mamillary nuclei and two paramamillary nuclei. Nucleus mamillaris lateralis and nucleus supramamillaris are uniform cellular bands while the nucleus(More)
A subpopulation of the pig inferior mesenteric ganglia (IMG) neurons projecting to the colon exhibit calbindin-like immunoreactivity. It is not known if there are any changes in the chemical coding patterns of these neurons during porcine proliferative enteropathy (PE). To answer this question, juvenile Large White Polish pigs with clinically diagnosed(More)
The Nissl staining and Golgi impregnation methods has been used to characterize the types of neurons in the claustrum of bison bonasus. Two fairly divergent subpopulations of cells can be distinguished by means of Golgi preparation technique. The first group--comprising the bulk of claustral neurons--is composed of only one type of large, efferent nerve(More)
SUMMARY Unbiased stereological methods were used to morphometrically examine and compare the medial geniculate body (MGB) of two species from different mammalian orders. The MGB had a similar nuclear pattern, and it was parcelled into three major cytoarchitectural areas: the dorsal nucleus (MGd), the ventral nucleus (MGv) and the medial nucleus (MGm). The(More)
