Biopsy samples of the cerebral cortex from four normal human brains were examined in the electron microscope for the presence of abnormalities related to neurones and neuroglia. Atypical forms of axons, axon terminals and dendrites, many of them similar to those described in a variety of pathological and experimental material, were found to occur in small but appreciable numbers. Neuroglia exhibiting atypical inclusions occurred but were much less common. Physiologically altered neuronal… CONTINUE READING
