The rostral anteroventral cochlear nucleus (AVCN) of the chinchilla provides a preparation in which neuronal cell bodies and synapses in the mammalian central nervous system can be examined after direct freezing and freeze-substitution of rapidly excised brain stem slices. Cell bodies and synapses in the freeze-substituted AVCN differed from those in perfusion-fixed AVCN in several interesting respects. Despite of these differences, four types of synaptic terminal were distinguished in freeze… CONTINUE READING
