Ultrastructural study of the synapses of central chromatolytic anterior horn cells in motor neuron disease.

Abstract

This report deals with an ultrastructural investigation of the synapses on the somata of central chromatolytic anterior horn neurons of seven patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and four patients with lower motor neuron disease (LMND) who had no upper motor neuron or corticospinal tract involvement. Specimens from 24 age-matched individuals… (More)
