The hypothalamus of adult lampreys (Lampetra fluviatilis L.) was studied by means of light and fluorescence microscopy (Falck's technique). Some single liquorcontacting nerve cells (LCNC) showing a weak green fluorescence were demonstrated in the ventral part of the third ventricle, above the preoptic recess. Caudally numerous fluorescent LCNC occur in the(More)
The anterior neurohypophysis (ANH)-pars distalis complex of the carp, Cyprinus carpio L., has been analysed by combined light, fluorescence and electron microscopy. Only few “Gomori-positive” fibres are seen in the caudal and especially in the rostral part of the ANH, where the false “Gomori-positive” fibres predominate. Monoamine fluorescence shows the(More)
The proximal neurosecretory contact region (PNCR) of the lamprey, a homologue of the median eminence of tetrapods, was studied by light, fluorescence and electron microscopy. Paraldehyde fuchsin-positive neurosecretory fibers are seen mainly in the central part of the rostral subdivision of the PNCR. The Falck-Hillarp technique reveals a weak, mainly(More)
Clinical and laboratory data of 1248 newly diagnosed diabetic children at the time of diagnosis were analysed. All children were admitted to the University Children's Hospital in Sofia, 45.9% before first their insulin injection. Symptoms preceding the diagnosis and laboratory data (plasma glucose and ketonuria) were analysed, respectively for 1100 and 1022(More)
The proximal neurosecretory contact region (PCR) of Acipenseridae, a homologue of the tetrapod median eminence, has been studied by light, fluorescence and electron microscopy. It occupies the rostral and chiefly the ventral surfaces of the hypothalamic tuber cinereum. PAF-positive fibres occur in the zone of the preoptico-hypophysial tract but their(More)
Monoamine-containing elements in the intestines of Bivalvia and Polychaeta species have been found by use of histochemical fluorescence methods according to Falck and Furness. Catecholamine-containing perikarya and fibers are seen within the epithelium and subepithelial layers of the midgut of the bivalves Mytilus edulis, Mya arenaria, Arctica islandica, as(More)
