Dendritic arborization pattern, spatial and synaptic relations of various neuron types and the terminal distribution of afferent axons of various origin were studied in the medial superior olivary nucleus of the cat using Golgi, degeneration, electron microscope and horseradish peroxidase techniques. Three types of neurons clearly different in morphological(More)
The distribution of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-immunoreactivity is described in serial Vibratome sections of the turtle brain. The results are discussed in relation to our previous studies of rat and chicken brains. In the turtle brain, the distribution of GFAP-positive elements is rather evenly abundant as compared to that observed in the(More)
Three different types of interneurons can be separated in the Golgi picture, and many of their details can be identified under the electron microscope, in the medial geniculate body (MGB) of the cat: (1) typical short axon Golgi II. cells of the thalamic type, (2) somewhat larger Golgi type II cells with medium range axon, and (3) spidery neurogliform short(More)
 This study is a continuation of the description of the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-immunopositive structures in the adult turtle brain (Kálmán et al. 1994) and presents a comprehensive description of the development of these structures from the 20th embryonic day (E20) to the adult age. GFAP-immunopositive elements were first detected at E28 and(More)
Golgi and electron microscopic analysis of the known cellular layers in concentric shells of the ventro-lateral portion of the medial geniculate body revealed a flat grid of high density neuropil filling the space between the geniculocortical relay cells, forming essentially a single cell layer in each lamina. The “skeleton” of this neuropil grid is made up(More)
An electron and light microscope study of the ventral division of the medial geniculate body using Golgi techniques, neurofibrillar stains and experimentally induced secondary degeneration. Geniculo-cortical relay cells and Golgi type II interneurons are easily recognized in the Golgi picture; under the electron microscope the two cell types and their(More)
In the mature mammalian and avian central nervous systems, neuronal destructions are followed by reactive gliosis, but data on other vertebrates are rather controversial. Mammals and birds belong to different amniote groups (Synapsida and Diapsida, respectively), but exhibit common general features in their glial architecture, mainly the predominance of(More)
