Using double immunofluorescence labeling, quantitative ratio between parvalbumin- and calbindin-containing neurons, neurons that co-localize both peptides, as well as the intensity of their immunoreactivities were studied in the brainstem, midbrain and forebrain auditory centers of two chelonian species, Testudo horsfieldi and Emys orbicularis. In the(More)
Using histochemical determination of activity of the mitochondrial oxidative enzyme cytochrome oxidase (CO) in brain structures, metabolic activity both in turtles and in lizards has been shown to be higher in centers of the tectofugal channel (the tectal stratum griseum centrale, SGC; nucleus pretectalis ventralis, Ptv; thalamic nucleus rotundus, Rot;(More)
The distribution of immunoreactivity to the calcium-binding proteins parvalbumin, calbindin and calretinin and of cytochrome oxidase activity was studied in the mesencephalic (torus semicircularis), thalamic (nucleus reuniens) and telencephalic (ventromedial part of the anterior dorsal ventricular ridge) auditory centres of two chelonian species Emys(More)
Using histochemical and immunohistochemical techniques, distribution of activity of oxidative mitochondrial enzyme cytochrome oxidase (CO) and of immunoreactivity to calcium-binding proteins has been studied in spiral ganglion and auditory nuclei of brainstem in two turtle species. It has been shown that immunoreactivity to calbindin, parvalbumin, and(More)
By using a histochemical method of determination of activity of cytochrome oxidase (CO), the level of metabolic activity in pigeons has been shown to be higher in centers of the tectofugal visual channel (pretectal nuclei: Pr, SP, SP/IPS, thalamic nucleus Rot, telencephalic entopallidum) than in centers of the thalamofugal visual channel (GLd, visual area(More)
Distribution of activity of cytochrome oxidase (CO) and immunoreactivity to parvalbumin (Pv) and calbindin (Cb) was studied in the optic tectum of the pigeon (Columba livia). In the first link of the tectofugal pathway in the central gray layer (SGC = layer 13), small amounts of the CO-active and Pv-immunoreactive (Pv-ir) cellular bodies were revealed in(More)
Immunohistochemical distribution of calcium-binding proteins, parvalbumin (PV) and calbindin (CB), has been studied in the mesencephalic auditory center (MLd) of pigeon (Columba livia). In the central region of the MLd (core, ICC), an overlap in distribution of the PVand CB-immunopositive (ip) neurons and neuropil has been observed, with different patterns(More)
Multichannel processing of environmental information constitutes a fundamental basis of functioning of sensory systems in the vertebrate brain. Two distinct parallel visual systems - the tectofugal and thalamofugal exist in all amniotes. The vertebrate central nervous system contains high concentrations of intracellular calcium-binding proteins (CaBPrs) and(More)
Using immunohistochemistry and a tracer technique we investigated the distribution in the optic tectum of turtles (Emys orbicularis and Testudo horsfieldi) of the calcium-binding proteins (CaBPr) parvalbumin (PV), calbindin (CB) and calretinin (CR) before and after labeling of the nucleus rotundus (Rot) with horseradish peroxidase. The optic tectum activity(More)
Using immunohistochemistry and tracer technique, we studied in the optic tectum of turtles (Emys orbicularis and Testudo horsfieldi) the distribution of CaBPr (parvalbumin, PV, calbindin, CB, calretinin, CR) before and after horseradish peroxidase delivery into nucleus rotundus (Rot). In parallel, activity of cytochrome oxidase (CO) was studied. In the main(More)
