The morphology of neurons in the "hilar region" of the hippocampus (fields CA3c and CA4 of Lorente de Nó, '34) was analyzed with several variants of the Golgi technique. Hippocampi were dissected from the brains of 28-day-old rats, fixed and impregnated by immersion, and sectioned perpendicular to the long axis. Based on the resident cell types, aspects of the neuropil, and published data related to afferent termination, the area under study was divided into four zones. At least 21 cell types… CONTINUE READING
