A cobaltic lysine complex was injected separately into the right and left fasciculi retroflexes of the frog. This tracing technique labeled, in a Golgi-like manner, the neurons which initiate the fasciculi retroflexes and revealed details of their morphological pattern. The fasciculi retroflexes originate from various neurons distributed in the diencephalon(More)
The habenular nuclei of the elasmobranch "Scyllium stellare" have been studied with conventional histological techniques for light microscopy. Their left-right asymmetry has been defined by the observation of serially cut sections. In addition, their cytoarchitectonic organization has been defined quantitatively. In all specimens observed, the left habenula(More)
An ultrastructural analysis of myelin in the ventral habenular and in the interpeduncular nuclei of the adult frog Rana esculenta has been carried out. In the ventral habenular nuclei, in addition to normally myelinated fibres, some myelin irregularities have been observed. They consist of myelin enwrapping the perikarya of some neurons and of isolated(More)
The olfactory system of the frog Rana esculenta was studied by using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) tracing of axonal pathways. Injections of HRP were made in the main olfactory bulb (MOB), accessory olfactory bulb (AOB), anterior olfactory nucleus (AON), the amygdala (AMY), and in a zone of the leteral wall of the telencephalic hemisphere immediately(More)
1. The distribution of substance P-like immunoreactivity was studied in Hydra attenuata using the peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique. 2. Positive immunoreactivity was observed in ectodermal nerve cells and fibers as well as in nematoblasts at various stages of differentiation. 3. Administration of synthetic substance P to regenerating hydra did not affect(More)
The ventricular sulcal pattern and the cytoarchitectonic organization of the brain stem of the frogs Rana esculenta and Rana catesbeiana have been studied in transversely cut, Nissl stained serial sections. Four longitudinal sulci, the sulcus medianus inferior, the sulcus intermedius ventralis, the sulcus limitans and the sulcus medianus superior could be(More)

Some neurons and glial cells of the interpeduncular nucleus of the adult frog Rana esculenta contain one cilium. The cilium complex shows two-centriole basal organization. Cross striated structures are seen apposed to the centriolar formations. The centriole and associated basal body are always close to the vesicular elements of the Golgi apparatus in the(More)
Cilia of the 9+2 pattern are found electron microscopically in nonependymal cells of the habenulae and the interpeduncular nucleus of the tadpole of Rana esculenta at an early stage of development (8 mm length, head to tip of tail). A comparison is made between these and the ependymal and sensory cilia in the same specimens. The cilia project into the(More)
