INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to identify the critical periods in the development of the human dentate nucleus in fetuses of different gestational ages and in one newborn brain. MATERIAL AND METHODS The fetal brains were fixed in alcohol-formalin-acetic acid, embedded in paraffin, cut into 30 micro sections, and stained with cresyl violet. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Catecholamines are chemical compounds which play an important role as neurotransmitters in many vital functions of the organism. The paper presents a short survey of their biosynthesis, disintegration andfunctions, with respect to the neuroanatomical location of cell groups which contain these compounds. CATECHOLAMINES IN THE HUMAN(More)
INTRODUCTION The paper deals with the embryonic development of human hypothalamus at the end of the first and during the second trimesters of gestation. Bearing in mind that the mammal brain, as an entity, develops from the prosencephalic, mesencephalic and rhombencephalic vesicles, which are noticeable in the cranial portion of the neural tube in the 4th(More)
Cerebral (sylvian) aqueduct is a narrow channel in the mesencephalon. It lies between the tectum and the tegmentum of the mesencephalon and is surrounded by the periaqueductal gray matter. The aim of this study was to determine the shape of the aqueduct of sylvius and the structure of its walls in a series of transverse histological sections. Serial(More)
The aim of this study was to shed more light on the developmental characteristics of human paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and hypothalamus in general, using modern immunohistochemical techniques to detect the activity of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) in the synthesis of catecholamine (CA). Fetal brains were examined at 12, 16, 20 and 23 weeks gestation.(More)
