Recent evidence supports the notion that the endocannabinoid system may play a crucial role in neuroinflammation. We explored the changes that some elements of this system exhibit in a macaque model of encephalitis induced by simian immunodeficiency virus. Our results show that profound alterations in the distribution of specific components of the(More)
BACKGROUND We studied the morphological changes occurring in neurons from the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) during aging by analysing the size and shape of cell bodies and nuclei. METHODS Male albino Wistar rats, aged 3, 18, 24, and 30 months, were used. After appropriate tissue preparation and following the usual histological procedure, the(More)
We carried out a study to establish ribonucleic acid (RNA) content in the nucleus and cytoplasm of single neuronal cells from the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) of 3-30 month-old rats. Mean RNA content was calculated as the product of RNA concentration and nuclear or cytoplasmic surface. The analysis of neuronal nuclei revealed no significant(More)
