Although gliosis has been reported to be a common and persistent feature in the white matter of hydrocephalic brains, no studies have identified the cell types that characterize this response. Therefore, the present study has employed histochemical methods to evaluate microglial cells in the brains of infant rats with inherited hydrocephalus. This strain of rats acquires hydrocephalus during late fetal stages due to aqueductal stenosis. Tissue from the sensorimotor and auditory cortices of 12… CONTINUE READING
