SummarySensory nerve terminations in the oral and digital tissues of slow loris (Nycticebus coucang coucang) were studied after topical or systemic administration of TOCP. Histochemical studies revealed a reduction of AChE and complete absence of ChE in sensory nerve terminations. In electron microscopy the light cells of taste buds showed vacuolization, degenerating mitochondria, distended endoplasmic reticulum, vesicle formation and “cytosegregosomes” while dark cells also has unusual shaped… Expand

Toxic effects on gustatory function.
TLDR
An understanding of these potential toxins and their impact on gustation will help physicians better recognize, and potentially limit the impact of such taste alterations on their patients. Expand

The Early Changes in the Axoplasm during Wallerian Degeneration

  • 1958
TLDR
Axoplasmic changes were studied in the saphenous nerve of the albino rat during the early stages of Wallerian degeneration and the neurofilaments underwent complete disintegration and the axoplasm became filled with finely granular material which later formed irregular clumps surrounded by a structureless matrix.

CHEMICALLY (TCP) INDUCED FIBRE DEGENERATION IN THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, WITH REFERENCE TO CLINICAL AND NEUROPHARMACOLOGICAL ASPECTS.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on nerve fiber degeneration caused by a biochemical lesion that is the indirect result of the action of toxic products or their metabolites, on account of their wide-spread industrial application and the consequent danger of contamination. Expand
The distribution of cholinesterase in cholinergic neurons demonstrated with the electron microscope.
TLDR
The thiocholine technique for cholinesterase has been successfully adapted for the demonstration of enzyme distribution with the electron microscope and the close correlation between the electron-microscopic results and evidence from physiological and biochemical investigations is discussed. Expand
THE HISTOPATHOLOGY OF TRIORTHOCRESYL PHOSPHATE POISONING: THE ETIOLOGY OF SO-CALLED GINGER PARALYSIS (THIRD REPORT)
TLDR
Pharmacologic examination of the available phosphoric esters of the better known phenols, viz., orthocresol and paracresol, and of phenol itself showed conclusively that the phosphate of orthoc Resol alone had this specific action on the neuromuscular apparatus. Expand

TLDR
A modification of the Bielschowsky-Gros silver diammine ion (ammoniacal silver) method of staining frozen sections is given in detail and it is suggested that this plexus has few “end-points”, and that humoral substances may be released in the continuity of the strands from the “beads” on the finest fibrils.

TLDR
La denervazione dei calici gustativi provoca due tipi fondamentali di alterazioni cellulari: lisosomi e citosegregosomi che colpiscono le cellule scarsamento differenziate e lesioni che sconvolgono l'intera organizzazione citoplasmatica delle cellule di II tipo. Expand
