A quantitative electron microscopic investigation of the nucleus interpositus in cat cerebellum reveals that about 1.5% of all observed synapses are established between synaptic vesicle-bearing profiles. It is shown by serial sections that 70% of these synaptic complexes are triadic arrangements and 30% are serial synapses. Further analysis discloses that the first presynaptic element in the triadic and serial synapses may be one of four different axonal types: (A) Purkinje-cell axons; (B) and… CONTINUE READING
