An electron microscope study of goldfish Mauthner cells is reported.(1) The cell is covered by a synaptic bed approximately 5 micro thick containing unusual amounts of extracellular matrix material in which synapses and clear glia processes are implanted. The preterminal synaptic neurites are closely invested by an interwoven layer of filament-containing satellite cell processes. The axoplasm of the club endings contains oriented mitochondria, neurofilaments, neurotubules, and relatively few… CONTINUE READING
