The position and extent of fiber pathways and their intersubject variability in the white matter of the forebrain have not been analyzed with histological techniques in the adult human brain. This is due mainly to the lack of a staining procedure with which the different fiber tracts can be visualized with sufficient contrast. The here described modification of the Heidenhain-Woelcke myelin stain yields increased contrast between heavily and less heavily myelinated pathways, facilitating… CONTINUE READING
