The combined Golgi/electron microscope (EM) technique was used to analyze the fine structure and synaptic organization of the various types of neurons in the rat lateral septum (LS), i.e., in the dorsolateral (LSd), intermediolateral (LSi), and ventrolateral (LSv) nuclei of the septal complex. Two characteristic cell types were observed in the LSd: type I with thick, short dendrites densely covered with short spines, and type II with longer and thinner dendrites exhibiting fewer but longer… CONTINUE READING
