On the morphology of the heart ventricle in marine teleost fish (teleostei)
Abstract 1. 1. The ventricle of the teleost heart assumes either a tubular, a sac-like or a pyramidal shape. 2. 2. The percentage body weight accounted for by the heart is significantly greater inExpand

Age and sex do not affect the volume, cell numbers, or cell size of the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the rat: An unbiased stereological study
The circadian rhythms displayed by numerous biological functions are known to be sex specific and affected by aging. It has not been settled yet whether the sex‐ and age‐related characteristics ofExpand

Distribution and changes with age of calcitonin gene-related peptide- and substance P-immunoreactive nerves of the rat urinary bladder and lumbosacral sensory neurons.
In the distal parts of the urinary tract, nerves containing calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) or substance P (SP) are sensory with their cell bodies located in lumbosacral dorsal root ganglia.Expand
