The long-term effect of betamethasone on the myelination of commissural and associational fibres was investigated in fetal sheep. We studied the corpus callosum and subcortical white matter by electron microscopy. Axons were subdivided into classes according to their axonal diameter: class I: < or =0.65 microm; class II: 0.66-0.84 microm; class III: > or =0.85 microm. Under control conditions, the different functions of the white matter tracts examined were reflected by three morphological… CONTINUE READING
