Nuclear and perikaryal volumes, as well as the mean percentage of perikaryal volume occupied by lipofuscin, were estimated in spinal ganglion neurons of 12, 42 and 79 month-old rabbits. The volume ratio between nucleus and perikaryal cytoplasm (N/C volume ratio) decreased progressively and significantly with increasing age. This was not a consequence of the perikaryal enlargement due to the age-related lipofuscin accumulation since the same result was obtained when the volume occupied by… CONTINUE READING
