Morphology of pyramidal neurones in cytochrome oxidase modules of the S-I bill representation of the platypus.

The primary somatosensory cortex of the platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is characterized by a distinct array of functionally specific cytochrome oxidase (CO) modules, forming alternate CO-rich and CO-poor bands. In the current study, we undertook to establish whether the cellular morphology of layer V pyramidal neurones reflects this modular… CONTINUE READING
