The terminal boutons of many neurons in the telencephalon are known to contain a vesicle-bound, chelatable pool of zinc (Zn2+) that can be selectively visualized with histochemical procedures. In this paper, the normal laminar, areal, and ultrastructural distribution of histochemically reactive zinc in the visual cortex of the adult cat as well as its development from birth are described. In the adult cat visual cortex, intense zinc staining was found in layers I, II, III, and V, with layer VI… CONTINUE READING
