The early evolution of neurofilamentous accumulations due to 2,5-hexanediol in the optic pathways of the rat.

Rats were given 2,5-hexanediol in their water for more than 5 weeks. The changes in the optic pathways were studied both qualitatively and quantitatively. Increase in 10-nm filaments within axons was noticeable from 10 days onwards in the superior colliculus and in the brachium of the superior colliculus. From then onwards there was a steady increase in the… CONTINUE READING
