Application of fractal analysis to neuronal dendritic arborisation patterns of the monkey dentate nucleus.


The deep nuclei of the cerebellar cortex have not yet received adequate exploratory attention. An exception is represented by the pioneering work of Chan-Palay, published in 1977, on the dentate nucleus morphology. She has classified each individual cell in the dentatus of the monkey into one of six types. Although fractal analysis is presently the most… (More)
