Topics from this paper

The pinealocytes of the human pineal gland: A light and electron microscopic study.
TLDR
The pinealocytes of the pineal gland of children and adults were studied at both light and electron microscopic levels and a very small cell type with an extremely thin and elongated cell body and nucleus was found. Expand
Effect of Sympathetic ganglionectomy on the Pineal Gland in Rhesus Monkey
The light microscopic structure and the effect of superior cervical ganglionectomy on the pineal gland of Rhesus monkey was studied in 24 animals. The animals were divided into three groups. Group IExpand
The pineal gland: A comparative MR imaging study in children and adults with respect to normal anatomical variations and pineal cysts
TLDR
The author tries to explain the previous discrepancy between the MR imaging and autopsy series findings with respect to frequencies of the pineal cysts, as well as addressing the potential significance of differences in their frequencies in children and adults. Expand
Prévalence et morphologie des kystes épiphysaires : à propos de 1844 IRM hypophysaires
Objectif. Evaluer la frequence, l'evolution morphologique et le retentissement clinique a long terme des kystes epiphysaires diagnostiques en IRM. Patients et methodes. Mille huit centExpand
A Probabilistic Atlas of the Pineal Gland in the Standard Space
TLDR
This work used the three-dimensional T1-weighted MRI data of 152 healthy young volunteers, and provided a probabilistic map of the PG in the standard Montreal Neurologic Institute (MNI) space, to provide a standard atlas for this structure. Expand
Incidental Intracranial Cysts in Children.
TLDR
Three common benign intracranial cysts found in the pediatric population are described: arachnoid cysts, choroid Cysts, and pineal cysts. Expand
MORPHOLOGY AND MINERAL COMPOSITION OF PINEAL GLAND CONCRETIONS IN VULPES LAGOPUS L., 1758 (MAMMALIA: CARNIVORA)
Mammalian pineal gland is known to often contain calcified concretions (brain sand, corpora arenacea, acervuli, concrements) with understudied biological significance, mineral and chemicalExpand
Management of pineal and colloid cysts
TLDR
This review addresses the difficulties in managing pineal and colloid cysts and provides a pragmatic framework for the practising clinician. Expand

The weight and degree of calcification of the pineal gland
The Weight of the Pineal Gland in Malignancy
A series of 150 pineal glands removed at routine postmortems in a general hospital have been examined. Statistical analysis of the weights of 147 of these glands from patients aged between 45 and 90Expand
Enzymes of the human pineal body.
TLDR
It is evident that the enzyme levels in the pineal are subject to change in response to as yet unknown environmental and/or pathophysiological variables. Expand
Statistical relationships of weight of the human pineal to age and malignancy
TLDR
The authors conclude that the human pineal does not undergo cellular atrophy after puberty and that there is some relationship between the presence of malignancy and the weight of the human Pineal. Expand
