A thorough evaluation of hippocampal dendrites, axons and synaptic contacts has not been undertaken following prolonged periods of absence of corticosteroids despite the marked granule cell loss which occurs in the dentate gyrus of adrenalectomized rats. Thus, we have applied morphometric techniques to analyse the dendrites of granule and pyramidal cells, the mossy fiber system, and the number and morphology of synapses between the mossy fibers and the excrescences of CA3 pyramidal cells in… CONTINUE READING
