The terminal sites of floccular efferent fibers were investigated in the albino rat by an autoradiographic orthograde method. The corticonuclear fibers terminated in the caudoventral part of the lateral cerebellar nucleus and in the caudoventral region of the lateral part of the posterior interpositus nucleus. A few fibers from the rostral flocculus(More)
In an 80-year-old Japanese male cadaver, the right subclavian artery originated from the aortic arch distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery, i.e., it was the last branch of the aortic arch. It coursed obliquely upwards and to the right behind the esophagus and trachea heading for the superior thoracic aperture. Its area of distribution was(More)
The topography of the cerebellar nucleocortical projection was investigated in the albino rat by experiments employing an autoradiographic orthograde tracing method. The present results indicate that neurons in the deep cerebellar nuclei project to the granule cell layer of cerebellar cortex as mossy fiber terminals in an orderly way. Thus, the medial(More)
The topographic organization of cerebellar cortical efferent fibers from the posterior lobe of the albino rat was studied by silver impregnation methods. The corticonuclear fibers from the vermis of the posterior lobe project to the caudomedial and middle parts of the medial cerebellar nucleus (MN) with medio-lateral localization; fibers from the medial(More)
The organization of the corticonuclear and corticovestibular projections from the uvula was investigated in the albino rat by an autoradiographic method. The corticonuclear fibers from sublobule a of the uvula terminated in the caudoventral part of the medial cerebellar nucleus, and the caudomedial part of the posterior interpositus nucleus with(More)
Differential projections from the subdivisions of the fastigial nucleus to the vestibular complex and the prepositus hypoglossal nucleus were investigated by an anterograde tracing method using biocytin in the albino rat. The caudomedial subdivision of the nucleus projected ipsilaterally to the dorsal and medial parts of the superior vestibular nucleus (Su(More)
The topographic organization of the corticonuclear and corticovestibular fibers from the pyramis and copula pyramidis in the albino rat was investigated by the autoradiographic orthograde tracing technique. Cortical efferent fibers from the medial part of the pyramis project to the caudoventral part of the caudomedial and middle subdivisions of the medial(More)
The distribution of sensory nerve endings of the knee joint in rats has been investigated by autoradiography of 3H-leucine. Sections were made and each section was examined by autoradiography and silver impregnation staining. Free nerve endings were found only in the synovial membrane, the menisci and their synovial junction. In the joint capsule,(More)
The topographic organization of the corticonuclear fibers from the tuber vermis and paramedian lobule in the albino rat was investigated by autoradiographic anterograde tracing method. The medial portion of the tuber vermis projects to the dorsal part of the caudomedial subdivision of the medial cerebellar nucleus (MNcm), whereas the lateral portion of the(More)
