Using histochemical and immunohistochemical techniques, distribution of activity of oxidative mitochondrial enzyme cytochrome oxidase (CO) and calcium-binding proteins-immunoreactivity was studied in the spiral ganglion and auditory nuclei of brainstem in two turtle species. Calbindin-, parvalbumin-and calretinin-immunoreactivity in neurons and neuropil of(More)
A comparative morphometric study was performed with MRI brain scans of term- and preterm-born infants. The structural characteristics of the brain were analyzed using conventional morphometric indices, and a novel quantitative parameter, the corpus callosum coefficient (kCC), was introduced based on patterns of the prenatal cortex ontogeny. All these(More)
Histochemical method of cytochrome oxidase demonstration was used to study its distribution in frontal sections of tectum of the midbrain in cat in normal conditions and after unilateral enucleation. Basic layers of this formation were demonstrated in normal conditions similar to those revealed using classical histological methods. After unilateral(More)
Cortical projections of the medial geniculate body have been studied in dolphin Phocaena phocaena by the method of anterograde degeneration of Fink--Heimer. For this purpose, in two animals a unilateral electrocoagulation of the thalamic auditory center has been performed. The caudal part of the microcellular nucleus of the medial-geniculate body has been(More)
Using histochemical determination of activity of the mitochondrial oxidative enzyme cytochrome oxidase (CO) the metabolic activity in structures of brain of turtles and lizards was shown to be higher in centers of the tectofugal channel (tectal SGC, pretectal Ptv, thalamic Rot, telencephalic visual area of Advr of) than in the centers of the thalamofugal(More)
Despite a long history of research of cortical marginal zone (MZ) organization and development, a number of issues remain unresolved. One particular issue is the problem of Cajal-Retzius cells (C-R) identification. It is currently based on morphology and Reelin expression. The aim of this research is to investigate MZ cytoarchitectonics and Reelin-producing(More)
A comparative histochemical study of cytochrome oxidase (CO) activity in the superior colliculus (SC) of intact laboratory rats and animals with unilaterally lesioned inner ear cochlea was carried out. It was shown that distribution of CO activity in the SC of intact rats corresponded to its cytoarchitectonic laminar organization had a heterogeneous(More)
Prenatal ontogeny of the human neocortex exhibits specific characteristics that make its organization unique. Therefore, experimental data obtained on animal models cannot be extrapolated to human cortex morphogenesis during the middle and late gestational periods. Characteristics of the development of cortical pyramidal neurons of the human brain were(More)
This review is devoted to neuroanatomical and neurophysiological mechanisms of Pavlovian fear conditioning with a focus on the amydgalae, two subcortical nuclear groups, as primary structures responsible for controlling conditioned fear responses, and synaptic plasticity at their afferent and efferent projections as a cellular mechanism to mediate the(More)
