Stereological methods were employed to estimate the volume and neuron numbers of the rat dorsal column nuclei (DCN). These methods were applied to Nissl-stained sections from control animals and cases that received injections of horseradish peroxidase in the thalamus, the cerebellum, or the spinal cord. Additional cases received combinations of fluorescent tracers in the same structures, to examine whether some of the retrogradely labeled neurons sent collaterals to different targets. The mean… CONTINUE READING
