Periventricular morphology in the diencephalon of antarctic notothenioid teleosts.


We have examined the subependymal region of the diencephalic third ventricle in notothenioid perciforms and report a pattern of neuropil expansions that appears to be phyletically derived for notothenioids and their outgroups but that is otherwise unique among vertebrates. We recognize five types of expansions based on their composition (from less dense… (More)
