Morphological changes and stress responses in neurons in cerebral cortex infiltrated by diffuse astrocytoma.

Local dysfunction in cerebral cortex infiltrated by astrocytoma can cause epilepsy and focal neurological deficits, but the cellular pathology of peritumoral cortex remains poorly defined. The aims of the present study were to define the morphological changes which occur in neurons in tumor-infiltrated cerebral cortex, and to determine whether peritumoral… CONTINUE READING
