We have used Valverde-Golgi and Golgi-Colonnier techniques to analyze cortical neuronal morphology in four regions (frontal cortex, primary motor cortex, primary somatosensory cortex, primary visual cortex) of the isocortex of the echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus). Eight classes of neurons could be identified--pyramidal, spinous bipolar, aspinous bipolar… CONTINUE READING
