A computer assisted morphometric method has been elaborated to quantify synaptic vesicles evidenced by means of the Zinc-Iodide-Osmium (ZIO) staining procedure in nerve endings of a very discrete area of the cerebellar granular layer: the glomerulus. The following parameters were calculated directly on electron microscopic negatives of 4.67 microns 2 of(More)
