The structural alterations of neuronal processes in mice were investigated after the mice were infected with rabies virus (RV). Silver staining of infected brain sections showed severe destruction and disorganization of neuronal processes in mice infected with pathogenic RV but not with attenuated RV. However, neuronal bodies showed very little pathological changes. Electron microscopy revealed the disappearance of intracellular organelles, as well as the disappearance of synaptic structures… CONTINUE READING
