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)
Myelinated axons in the human lateral corticospinal tract (LCST) at the C6 and L4 levels were examined on 16 male cadavers, with age ranging from 41 to 88 years. The average area of axons in the LCST was measured using a microscopic image-analyzing system. Our data show that the average area of axons at the C6 and L4 levels decreased with age. We also(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)
We studied the nerve fibers of the human mandibular nerve using edentulous jaw cadavers. We made nitrocellulose sections and stained them with Goto's modification of Masson-Goldner's method in order to evaluate the nerve fibers using an image-analyzer. The results showed an unusual feature: a sudden increase of axonal areas during the decade of the 80s(More)
We evaluated the components of nerve fibers of the motor and sensory roots of the trigeminal nerve by morphometric analysis. Trigeminal nerves were obtained from 5 cadavers (males, aged 67-95) were stained by Masson-Goldner-Goto method and examined under the microscope using a morphometric image-analyzer. The area and perimeter of axons were larger in the(More)
The development of the human gracilis nucleus was studied on serial sections of the brain of 9 fetuses and neonates at 18-40 weeks of gestation, a two-month-old infant and a 63-year-old adult using a microscope with a drawing tube and an image-analyzing computer system. A morphometric evaluation revealed that the human gracilis nucleus, whose neurons were(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)
