The goal of this study was to determine the distribution and diversity of astrocytes and oligodendrocytes within the lateral superior olive of the gerbil. We used morphometric analyses and several immunocytochemical markers to assess differences in glial cell composition between the lateral (low-frequency projection) and the medial (high-frequency projection) limb of the lateral superior olive. Cell counts from Toluidine-stained semithin sections revealed a similar density of total astrocytes… CONTINUE READING
