One of the frequent abnormalities described in the context of surgically resected temporal lobe (TL) specimens is the presence of heterotopic neurons within white matter (WM). We have attempted to morphometrically define the distribution of the heterotopic neurons in normal subjects, comparing the incidence of heterotopic neurons in TL WM with that in occipital (OL) and frontal lobe (FL) sections. Using a a combination of routine and special stains combined with immunohistochemical confirmation… CONTINUE READING
