Sample text

Developmental influences on different neurons, is largely reflected in the variation of dendritic and axonal outgrowth. Specialization also occurs at axonal terminals, where a variety of junctional complexes, known as synapses, exist. The subtle synaptic modifications are best visualized ultrastructurally, although immunohistochemical staining also permits distinction among synapses on the basis of transmitter type. General structural features of neurons are the perikarya, dendrites and axons. The stereotypical image of a neuron is that of a stellate cell body, the perikaryon or soma, with broad dendrites emerging from one pole and a fine axon emerging from the opposite pole.

Other studies [17] have correlated this synaptic vesicular diversity with physiological data. In his study on the cerebellum, Gray [17] showed that neurons with a known predominance of excitatory input on dendrites and an inhibitory input on the cell body possessed two corresponding types of synapse; however, although this interpretation fits well in some loci of the CNS, it does not hold true for all regions. Furthermore, some workers consider that the differences between flat and spherical vesicles may reflect an artifact of aldehyde fixation or a difference in physiological state at the time of sampling.

As with astrocytes, oligodendrocytes are highly variable, differing in location, morphology and function, but definable by some morphological criteria. The cell soma ranges from 10 to 20 µm and is roughly globular and more dense than that of an astrocyte. The margin of the cell is irregular compressed against the adjacent neuropil, and may show the presence of coated pits. Few cell processes are seen, in contrast to the astrocyte. Within the cytoplasm, many organelles are found. Parallel cisternae of rough ER and a widely-dispersed Golgi apparatus are common.
