The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of water was measured in single Aplysia californica neurons by using NMR microscopy encoded in each of two perpendicular gradient directions. Comparisons of the mean ADCs of the gross nuclear and cytoplasmic compartments in five cells, and 50 subregions within these cells, showed no significant difference between the diffusion measurements in the majority of cases. Since anisotropic diffusion would make the ADC dependent on the encoding direction, the… CONTINUE READING
