Argyrophil III staining is a useful method for the detection of dark neurons (DNs) that would reflect an early cytopathic feature. We examined the appearance of DNs following the stressful exercises (0.5-3 h swimming in a pool of 25-45 cm depth; 1-2 h running on a treadmill at the speed of 600-1200 cm/min) in the rat. After the swimming, DNs were detected in the hippocampus (CA1-2 pyramidal cell layer, oriens layer), somatosensory cortex, entorhinal cortex, hypothalamus, habenular nucleus… CONTINUE READING
