The morphological classification of the different neuronal cell types is generally accepted and expanded by us; nevertheless, immunohistochemically and electrophysiologically the existence of clear-cut categories of enteric neurons is frequently questioned. The immunohistochemical results demonstrated in this study, however, provide the first direct link between a morphological type of enteric neuron and an immunohistochemical staining for a distinct peptide. Evidence demonstrates that… CONTINUE READING
