In a study of Japanese adults, we found that the orbital branch (OB) passing through the superior orbital fissure frequently anastomosed with the lacrimal artery or the ophthalmic artery (12/20). However, the OB passing through the meningo-orbital foramen (mof) only associationaly anastomosed with branches of the ophthalmic artery (4/79). Furthermore, the(More)
We examined cross-sectional areas of Meissner's corpuscles to evaluate the changes in their morphology and density that occur during the aging process. Our study of 10 tissue specimens from the right index finger pulp of 10 males, showed that both the size and the number of Meissner's corpuscles decrease with age. We claim greater accuracy in our data(More)
We have developed a new technique for the morphological differentiation of various nerve fibers which is especially suitable for the morphometric study of nerve fibers of the human nervous system with the help of an image-analyzer. The knowledge from findings by this technique, which is based on several study methods, may be of importance in promoting(More)
In the masticatory muscles, the development of bundles of the tendon was examined: they were composed of many collagen fibers and a few elastic fibers. In the masseter muscle, the property of the tendon differs in the distribution and size of collagen fibers and elastic fibers in comparison with those of other masticatory muscles. This difference is(More)
We measured the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the human tractus solitarius (HTS) with the help of an image-analyzer system on a cross section of the upper part of the medulla oblongata in 44 Japanese cadavers (22 males and 22 females) and examined the relationship between age, sex and whether the subjects were dentulous or edentulous. The results showed no(More)
We found a morphological similarity in the distribution of vascular lesions in five hanging suicide brains. The overall findings on the lesions remind us of the venous origin but not of the arterial origin of the blood supply. Morphometric evaluations did not reveal any valuable conclusion. The results of this pathological research may be of clinical(More)
The morphometric features of the development of the human cuneatus medialis nucleus (CMN) were examined using complete serial celloidin sections of 11 brains: nine fetal brains, the brain of a 2-month-old infant and that of a 63-year-old adult. The morphometric analysis revealed at least four stages in the development of the CMN characterized by the(More)
The morphology of the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) of human fetuses, ranged from 12 to 32 weeks gestation, was investigated by a light microscopy and a scanning electron microscopy. The collagenous fibers of the perimysium of the SCM formed complex structures from 24 weeks gestation by contrast to fibers of the endomysium of the SCM. The cross-sectional(More)
The aim of this research is to find and to evaluate morphometorically the unmyelinated nerve fibers in the human mandibular nerve using a light microscope. Our report demonstrates for the first time the presence of the unmyelinated nerve fibers of the human mandibular nerve stained by a special method. Our results also indicate that there is a morphometric(More)
Laryngeal muscles, namely, the cricothyroid (CT), lateral crico-arytenoid (LCA), thyrio-arytenoid (TA), posterior crio-arytenoid (PCA), interarytenoid (IA) muscles, of Japanese monkeys (body weight, 4.4-8.3 kg; 3-10 years old, male) were examined histologically and by light and scanning electron microscopy. The diameter of muscle fibres with nerve terminals(More)
