Cells with features suggestive of ameboid motion and phagocytic properties are observed in the rat corpus callosum during the first few days of life. These cells, hereafter referred to as 'ameboid cells', have been investigated in several ways. An electron microscopic study of the corpus callosum in 5- to 7-day-old rats indicated that most 'ameboid cells' were typical macrophages, but some displayed features of monocytes, while others appeared to be transitional between the two types. These… CONTINUE READING
