Behavioral experiments using ablation of the hippocampus are increasingly being used to address the hypothesis that the avian hippocampus plays a role in memory, as in mammals. However, the morphological basis of the avian hippocampus has been poorly understood. In the present study, the afferent and efferent connections of the hippocampus in the pigeon(More)
In the present study, we investigated the immunohistochemical localization of two-pore K(+)-channels TASK-1, TASK-2, TASK-3 and TRAAK in the rat carotid body. Type I cells were positive for TASK-1, TASK-2, TASK-3 and TRAAK. Intrinsic nerve cell bodies were also strongly positive for TASK-1, TASK-2 and TRAAK, but negative for TASK-3. In addition, some type(More)
The aim of the present study was to define the age-related changes in sensory and secretomotor nerve endings in the larynx of F344/N rats. For this purpose, laryngeal tissue sections obtained from 12-, 24- and 35-month-old F344/N rats were compared with respect to the density, distribution and morphology of various types of sensory and secretomotor nerve(More)
Very little is known about esophageal innervation in the hamster. In the present study, we used protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5) to determine immunohistochemically the architectural features of the enteric nervous system in the hamster esophagus. The myenteric plexus consisted of a loose and irregular network of ganglia and interganglionic nerve bundles.(More)
