Our earlier Golgi-electron microscopic study of bipolar cells in the rat visual cortex showed the axons of these neurons as forming asymmetric synapses (Peters and Kimerer; J. Neurocytol, 10:921-946, '81) in which the most common postsynaptic elements were dendritic spines. This result was unexpected, since Parnavelas (Parnavelas, Sullivan, Lieberman, and(More)
The neuronal population of area 17 of rat visual cortex has been examined by using tissue from brains fixed by perfusion. The tissue was osmicated and embedded in plastic so that the same neurons could be examined by both light and electron microscopy. In these preparations area 17 was 1.49 mm thick and by stereological procedures it was calculated that(More)
An examination of material prepared for conventional electron microscopy has indicated that there are at least four different types of axon terminals forming symmetric synapses with the cell bodies and initial axon segments of layer II/III pyramidal cells in the rat visual cortex. One type of terminal synapses with the initial axon segment and it is derived(More)
Four different types of axon terminals form symmetric synapses with the cell bodies and initial axon segments of pyramidal cells in layer II/III of rat visual cortex. One type belongs to chandelier cells, and the other three kinds of terminals have origins that have not been established yet. These latter are referred to as large, medium-sized and dense(More)
Kant’s transcendental idealism requires that experience be both spatial and temporal. In the First Analogy of Experience, he argues that in order for experience in time to be possible, there must be something permanent in our experience. This something permanent is substance: a bearer of properties that persists and conserves its quantity throughout any(More)
The cell bodies of the layer II/III pyramidal cells in rat visual cortex receive three morphologically distinct types of axon terminals. These axon terminals all form symmetric synapses and have been termed large, medium-sized, and dense axon terminals. The present study shows that each of these different kinds of axon terminals contains gamma-aminobutyric(More)
Area 17 of the brains of Sprague-Dawley derived rats, maintained on a limited ration of food to maintain their weights at the levels attained by two months of age, was compared with area 17 in control groups of rats fed ad lib. The oldest rats in the diet restricted group were sacrificed at 46 and 48 months of age, by which time their life spans had been(More)
