Size of nerve cells in animals whose growth has been artificially arrested


, : Size of nerve cells in animals whose growth has been artificially arrested. Zeitschr Zellforsch U Mikrosk Anat 22(5): 724-734

Spinal ganglion cells from hypoplastic albino rats were constantly smaller than those from normal animals of equal age, and the variability in the size of individual ganglion cells was less in hypoplastic animals than in the normal. The av. volume of the ganglion cell in animals with arrested growth was proportional, at least within certain limits, to the surface area of the body. Therefore the retardation in growth of the individual nerve cells closely parallels the arrested growth of the body. Such arrested growth is characteristic only of the nerve cell, because the cells of other organs (kidney, liver) are the same size in hypoplastic as in normal animals.

Non-linear effects of age on white matter integrity are ubiquitous in the brain and indicate that these effects are more pronounced in certain brain regions at specific ages. Box-Cox analysis is a technique to increase the log-likelihood of linear...

Recent phylogenetic studies based on DNA sequence data indicate that the tropical African bee genus Macrogalea is the sister group to the remaining extant allodapine fauna, whereas previously it was thought to be a distal group. This leads to some...
