This study examines the time of origin of cells in the external granular layer (EGL) in the frog cerebellum during early stages of development. Premetamorphic bullfrog tadpoles were given multiple intraperitoneal injections of 3H-thymidine (10 microCi/g body weight per injection) at developmental stages ranging from 4 weeks to 1 year and were killed at(More)
The formation of the cerebellum was studied during the first 6 months of the tadpole stage of the bullfrog by using standard histological methods and reconstructions from serial horizontal sections. Three major developmental phases were noted in the formation of the cerebellum. (1) During the first 5 weeks of development, the neuroepithelium proliferated(More)
Calcium binding protein (CaBP) immunoreactivity in the cerebellum of bullfrogs was examined, concentrating on cells associated with the auricular lobe. While anti-calretinin and anti-parvalbumin also immunoreacted with the same cell populations, anti-calbindin exhibited the most robust and typical pattern of immunostaining. Calbindin immunoreactivity was(More)
Calbindin-immunoreactive Purkinje cells were identified in the cerebella of frog tadpoles that had been treated with thyroxine to accelerate metamorphosis. The dorsal part of the cerebellar plate contained the full complement of Purkinje cells which were all CaBP-immunoreactive, while in the ventral part of the cerebellum Purkinje cells acquired(More)
Granule cell maturation in the cerebellum of bullfrog tadpoles was studied during both spontaneous and thyroxine-induced metamorphosis by using electron microscopy and Golgi-impregnated preparations. The production of cerebellar microneurons, a majority of which are granule cell precursors, was quantitatively compared during spontaneous and(More)
This study examines the origin of cells in the interauricular granular band (iagb) in the cerebellum of the frog tadpole during early stages of development by means of histological and autoradiographic methods. Premetamorphic bullfrog tadpoles were exposed to multiple doses of 3H-thymidine (10 microCi/g body weight per exposure) at developmental stages(More)
Stellate cell development was studied in the bullfrog cerebellum during spontaneous and thyroxine-induced metamorphosis using the Golgi-Kopsch method and electron microscopy. Cells that possessed axosomatic synapses and resembled stellate cells were present even in the incipient molecular layer of the cerebellum in the premetamorphic tadpole. These cells(More)
The maturation of Purkinje cells in the cerebella of both thyroxine (T4)-induced and normally metamorphosing tadpoles was studied by transmission electron microscopy, with particular reference to the perikaryal changes. During the latter part of the prometamorphic phase, many Purkinje cells showed hypertrophied apical cones filled with mitochondria, Golgi(More)
The development and organization of Purkinje cell axons and their collaterals was studied in the bullfrog using the Golgi-Kopsch method. In the tadpole, axonal collaterals are few and usually unbranched. In the adult, however, intracortical axonal collaterals of Purkinje cells are more numerous, and they form a meager supraganglionic plexus and a more(More)
The cerebellum of the premetamorphic bullfrog tadpole differs from the cerebellum of other frog species in its morphology and maturational state. The cell mass beneath the floor of the lateral recess and bordering its lateral wall that has been reported to form the auricular lobe in other species is absent, the auricular lobe abutting the medial wall of the(More)
