The neostriatum of 20 adult humans was examined in Golgi-Kopsch and rapid Golgi preparations. At least five types of neurons and four types of afferent fibers are described. Neurons of medium size with spine-rich dendrites (spiny type I) are the most frequent type. These cells exhibit a greater morphological diversity than those previously studied in the monkey. Also, quantitative data show that, compared to the monkey, spiny type I neurons in man have a greater somal size and dendritic field… CONTINUE READING
