The neuronal and glial cell composition of the rat visual cortex (area 17) has been determined quantitatively using stereological techniques. The volume numerical densities (number of cells per mm3 of cortex) of neurons and of the principal glial cell types (astroglia, oligodendroglia, and microglia) were calculated from tangential semithin resin sections spaced at regular intervals 50 micron apart throughout the entire depth of the visual cortex. From measurements of cortical and laminar… CONTINUE READING
