  • The subthalamic (STh) nucleus is located between the zona incerta dorsally and the cerebral peduncle ventrally. The morphological features of STh neurons have been studied extensively at the light microscopic level (Rafols and Fox, 1976; Iwahori, 1978; Yelnik and Percheron, 1979; Hammond and Yelnik, 1983; Kita et al., 1983b; Afsharpour, 1985b) and the electron microscopic level (Rafols and Fox, 1976; Hassler et al., 1982; Chang et al., 1983). Although these studies have proposed different… CONTINUE READING
