The ultrastructure of the developing neural lobe of rats was studied. The results revealed three periods in its development. The first period lasts till the 17th day of fetal life. At its beginning the anlage of the neural lobe is formed as a mass of cells very similar in appearance and in connection with the subependymal cells of the future median(More)
The localization of Substance P(SP)-, Methionine-Enkephalin(met-Enk)-, Somatostatin(SOM)- Serotonin(SER)-, Cholecystokinin(CCK)-, and Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-like immunoreactivity (-LIR) has been determined immunocytochemically in the thoracic spinal cord intermediate zone of male and female guinea pigs. All neuroactive substances studied(More)
Histochemically the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) enzyme activity and immunocytochemically the choline acetyltransferase-like immunoreactivity (ChAT-LI) were located in the components of the vegetative network of the thoracolumbar spinal cord of the guinea pig. Both reaction products showed an identical distribution among the preganglionic sympathetic cells(More)
A dense AChE-negative and NA fluorescent network was visualized by light microscopy in the sacral spinal cord intermediate zone of grown-up guinea pigs of both sexes. This network connects in horizontal and vertical direction the preganglionic vegetative nuclei (n. intermediolateralis pars principalis (ILp), n. intermediolateralis pars funicularis (ILf), n.(More)
The development of the vascular system in the neurohypophysis of the rat shows three periods of structural differentiation. The first period lasts until the 17th fetal day. During this period the superficial and the border plexuses are formed, and rapid vascularization of the neural lobe anlage takes place. The end of this period is marked by the formation(More)
A dorsal horn fiber system is revealed along the entire length of the spinal cord of guinea pig, rat and wild hamster by means of FMRF-amide immunocytochemistry. Additionally by the same method are revealed two IR networks in the intermediate zone of the thoracic and sacral spinal cord which are identical with the described earlier by us (Galabov and(More)
The localization of thyrotropin-releasing hormone immunoreactivity (TRH-IR) has been determined in the thoracic spinal cord of male and female guinea pigs. The immunoreactive product is localized in nerve fibre varicosites and terminals throughout the spinal gray matter and in some regions of the white matter. There are not TRH-IR neurons in the spinal(More)
A dense AChE-positive network was visualized by light microscopy in the thoracic spinal cord of grown-up guinea pigs of both sexes (bodyweight 250–300 g). This network connects in a horizontal and vertical direction the preganglionic sympathetic nuclei (n. intermediolateralis pars principalis (ILp), n. intermediolateralis pars funicularis (ILf), n.(More)
