The purpose of this study was to examine the MRI appearance of the ligaments within the external space of the lumbar intervertebral foramen by correlating MR images with the corresponding anatomic dissection of the cadaver lumbar spine. This was a two part study. Part I of the anatomic study consisted of the dissection of lumbar specimens from one embalmed(More)
A qualitative analysis of the morphology of human putamen nerve cells involves a detailed description of the structure and features of neurons and, accordingly, their classification into already defined classes and types. In our sample of 301 neurons, 64.78 % (195) were spiny and 35.22 % (106) aspiny cells. By analyzing cell bodies and dendritic trees, we(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The role of the dentate nucleus is to coordinate input information coming from the lower olivary complex and various parts of the brainstem of the spinal marrow with the output information from the cerebellar cortex. To better understand functions and relations of the dentate nucleus it is highly important to study its development process.(More)
This study calls attention to the difference between traditional box-counting method and its modification. The appropriate scaling factor, influence on image size and resolution, and image rotation, as well as different image presentation, are showed on the sample of asymmetrical neurons from the monkey dentate nucleus. The standard BC method and its(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Dentate nucleus (nucleus dentatus) is the most distant of the cerebellar nuclei and the major system for information transfer in the cerebellum. So far, dendritic branches of four different kinds of large neurons of dentate nucleus, have been considered mainly qualitatively with no quantification of their morphological features. The aim of(More)
Many measurements in biology follow distributions that can be approximated well by the normal distribution. The normal distribution plays an extremely important role in probability theory. However, some of the experimental data in biology are distributed asymmetrically. In order to transform such an asymmetrical distribution into a normal distribution, for(More)
INTRODUCTION The immunohistochemical method was used to follow the expression ofneuropeptide Y in the course of pre ischemia of the rat brain. The aim of the study was to define all the areas of expression of this protein, show their localization, their map of distribution and histological types. MATERIAL AND METHODS All the sections of telencephalon,(More)
The caudate nucleus, as a part of the striatum (neostriatum or dorsal striatum), is involved in the control of cognitive, motor and limbic functions. The majority of the caudate nucleus cells are projection spiny neurons, whose activity is determined by excitatory inputs from the cortex, thalamus, globus pallidus and brainstem. A qualitative analysis of(More)
INTRODUCTION This study used the immunohistochemical method to follow the expression of cytoplasmatic protein somatostanin in the course of ischemia of rat brain. The aim of the study was to define all the areas of expression of somatostain and to show the protein distribution on the map. MATERIAL AND METHODS All the sections of telencephalon,(More)
