Age-related changes of human pineal gland were studied morphologically on 168 autopsy cases. Pineal weight in the formalin-fixed condition was 99 +/- 56 mg in males (n = 88, mean age 78 years) and 91 +/- 41 mg in females (n = 80, mean age 79 years), which showed no sexual difference (P = 0.290). There was no correlation between pineal weight and age of the patient (r = 0.0678, P = 0.191, n = 168). The pineal volume calculated as a spheroid was directly proportional to the weight (r = 0.904, n… CONTINUE READING
