SummaryThe large projection neurons of the lateral nucleus have long axons, which leave the cell mass in the superior cerebellar peduncle. These axons emit myelinated recurrent collaterals which have synaptic varicosities en passant. The varicosities are 2–5 μm in diameter and contain round, agranular synaptic vesicles ranging between 280 and 480 Å with diameters of approximately 400 Å. The vesicles lie in a moderately dark axoplasmic matrix with a mean packing density of 281/μm2. The… CONTINUE READING
