Neuronal counts in the medial, dorso-medial, and dorsal areas of the cerebral cortex of a common lizard, Podarcis hispanica, have been performed on a set of different sized (aged) animals. With age, (size), there is a significant increase in the number of neuronal somata of the inner plexiform and granular strata of both the medial and dorso-medial areas.(More)
The ependymal surface, cell number, cell size and cell density were measured in adult and neonatal exemplars of the lizard, Podarcis hispanica. The ependymal monostratified surface increases with age, while that of sulcal areas decreases and the ependymocyte number remains constant. The mitotic activity found in the neonatal sulcal areas could explain the(More)
