SummaryNeuronal types of the human clastrum have been investigated by means of a transparent Golgi technique which enables one to study the characteristics of not only the cellular processes but also the marking features of the nuclei, the cellular organelles, and the paraplasmic substances of various types of nerve cells.Five varieties of neurons have been distinguished:Type I represents a class of spiny nerve cells varying to a certain extent in size and shape. These cells contain fine and…

SummaryNerve cell types of the lateral geniculate body of man were investigated with the use of a transparent Golgi technique that allows study of not only the cell processes but also the pigment

SummaryNerve cells of the human striatum were investigated with the use of a newly developed technique that reveals the pattern of pigmentation of individual nerve cells by means of transparent Golgi

SummaryNerve cell types of the neocortex-dependent nuclei of the human thalamus were investigated with the use of a transparent Golgi technique, that allows one to study not only the peculiarities of
Cytoarchitecture of the dorsal claustrum of the cat: a quantitative Golgi study
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to describe the types of neurons found in the dorsal claustrum of the cat using the Golgi impregnation method and to perform a quantitative analysis of the following morphometric parameters: number of terminals (ends), total dendritic length, dendrite complexity, spine density, varicosity density, and aspiny interneurons.
Electron microscopic study of Golgi-impregnated and gold-toned neurons and fibers in the claustrum of the cat
TLDR
The ultrastructural findings allow us to conclude that large and medium-sized spiny claustral neurons are indeed efferent neurons, projecting to the cortex, while the small spiny and the different types of aspiny neurons are most likely inhibitory local circuit interneurons.
The Claustrum of the Pig: An Immunohistochemical and a Quantitative Golgi Study
TLDR
The results that are reported here show that the dendritic architecture and the distribution of the PV expressing interneurons change when the Cl of this species changes its shape along the rostro‐caudal axis, thus suggesting a potentially specific function for the large posterior puddle.
Topographical distribution and morphology of NADPH-diaphorase-stained neurons in the human claustrum
TLDR
Two populations of NADPHd-positive neurons in the human claustrum are revealed—one comprised of large and medium cells consistent with a projection neuron phenotype, the other represented by small cells resembling the interneuron phenotype as defined by previous Golgi impregnation studies.
Parvalbumin-immunoreactive neurons in the human claustrum
TLDR
The morphology and distribution of parvalbumin-immunoreactive neurons (PV-ir) were studied in the human claustrum, with the highest numbers noted in the central (broadest) portion as compared with the dorsal and ventral aspects.

The problem whether or not the cytoarchitecture of the claustrum at the light microscope level is identifiable at the ultrastructural level as well, and the possible origin of various types of terminals above described, were discussed briefly.

TLDR
The cellular composition of the primate claustrum was analyzed using serially sectioned Golgi impregnated neurons using a soft resin mixture and cut with 25 mm long glass knives to embed sections at a thickness of only 3 μm.

TLDR
Observations on the cortical afferents to the claustrum derived from a large series of rabbit brains in which a variety of cortical lesions had been placed, prepared by the Nauta and Glees methods are placed.
Layer I of striate cortex of Tupaia glis and Galago senegalensis: Projections from thalamus and claustrum revealed by retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase
We have examined the origin of the subcortical projections to the superficial layers of the striate cortex in Tupaia glis and Galago senegalensis by using the retrograde transport of HRP. Crystals of
Loss of pigment-laden stellate cells: A severe alteration of the isocortex in juvenile neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosis
TLDR
In juvenile neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosis, they reveal an almost complete to total loss of small pigment-laden stellate cells, suggesting its pronounced and selective vulnerability in this lysosomal disease may be causally related to the marked functional impairment of the brain.
The claustrum in the dog brain.
TLDR
The structure of the claustrum was studied in the dog brain using Weigert's, Klüver-Barrera's, Manns' and Nissl's methods and can be regarded as a fragment of a bigger cellular formation present in different parts of the hemisphere.
The organization of the claustroneocortical projections in the cat studied by means of the HRP retrograde axonal transport
TLDR
The projections from the claustrum to the cerebral cortex were examined in the cat by means of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) injections in various different areas of the lateral and medial surfaces of the neocortex and showed a prevalent anteroposterior and dorsoventral topographical arrangement.
Sensory maps in the claustrum of the cat
TLDR
It is concluded that loops connecting sensory areas of the neocortex with satellite zones in the claustrum contribute to the early processing of exteroceptive information by the forebrain.
