The aim of the present paper is to describe the morphology and topography of the nuclei of the amygdaloid complex in the rabbit. In the current study we also investigated the intensity of the enzymatic reaction for acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in the amygdaloid complex and the morphology of its neurones. Material consisted of 5 brains of adult New Zealand(More)
The aim of the study was to estimate developmental changes in the rabbit basolateral complex (BLC) by stereological and histochemical methods. Material consisted of 45 brains of New Zealand rabbits (aged from 2 to 180 days, P2 to P180) of both sexes, divided into nine groups. The following parameters were estimated: volume of the cerebral hemisphere; volume(More)
The connections between two parts of the claustrum in the rat and rabbit were studied using the highly fluorescent lipophilic carbocyanine dye (Dil). After the application of Dil crystal into the endopiriform nucleus, labeled fibers in the insular claustrum were observed in its part directly neighboring the insular cortex and capsula externa. Additionally,(More)
Microtubules are present in high concentration in the nervous system and are a prominent component of the neuronal cytoskeleton. Microtubules are composed of tubulin and variety of microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs), which have been implicated in the regulation of microtubule assembly and function. MAP2 is the most abundant of these proteins, and it has(More)
For many years the amygdaloid body has been an object of numerous investigations on different species, because the basolateral complex, being the main part of the amygdaloid body, is regarded as "sensory input" to this structure. It plays a very important role in so called emotional memory and learning, what is particularly important in early developmental(More)
The morphometric analysis of changes occurring in the rabbit claustrum in the early postnatal period was performed by means of unbiased stereological methods. Material consisted of 40 animals aged from P2 to P180 (P-postnatal day) divided into eight groups. The volume of the claustrum, total number and numerical density of its neurons change very rapidly at(More)
The aim of the present study is to follow topographical and morphological changes in the development of the amygdaloid basolateral complex (BLC) in the rabbit. The material consists of 35 brains of New Zealand rabbits of both sexes, divided into 7 age groups (P2-P90). In cresyl violet preparations BLC is already well visible on P2 and is composed of the(More)
The present study investigates the development of microglial and astroglial cells in the postnatal rat striatum, using immunohistochemical methods with panel antibodies that recognize macrophage antigens of unknown function--ED 1, complement type 3 receptor--OX-42 (for microglia) and glial fibrillary acidic protein (for astrocytes). On the day of birth,(More)
The morphometric analysis of changes occurring in the rat and rabbit ventroposterolateral (VPL) nucleus of the thalamus during the postnatal development was performed using unbiased stereological methods. The materials used in the study included 30 Wistar rats and 32 New Zealand rabbits aged from P0 to P180 (P-postnatal day), which were divided into six and(More)
A comparative quantitative study of the somatosensory thalamocortical connections in the rat and rabbit, labeled with the fluorescent retrograde tracer Fluoro-Gold (FG), was conducted by means of unbiased stereology. FG was injected into the primary somatosensory cortex of the rat and rabbit in different age groups from P0 to P180 (P-postnatal day). The(More)
