Neurocytology: Fine Structure of Neurons, Nerve Processes, by Ennio Pannese

By Ennio Pannese

In the course of the moment 1/2 the twentieth century, the creation of a number of new suggestions significantly increased our wisdom of the constitution of nerve and neuroglial cells and of the association of the fearful process on the mobile point. This new info has, despite the fact that, more often than not been scattered through the literature, making it tough for investigators to realize an total imaginative and prescient of the self-discipline. the writer has marshalled those scattered info to supply a scientific evaluation of the sector positioned inside of a old context. He has correlated the most important new findings with the classical notions of sunshine microscopy and has built-in them with components of biochemistry and mobile body structure. After the book of the 1st variation, the advent of recent microscopies and particularly the expansion of molecular biology have enormously improved our wisdom, specifically at the intercellular verbal exchange within the anxious process and at the roles of neuroglial cells. those achievements have made a moment version of the ebook important. The absolutely revised and up-to-date textual content, including detailed high quality illustrations of buildings of the imperative and peripheral worried approach, make sure that this new version might be helpful for neuroscientists, really these concerned about mobile neuropathology, neurochemistry, neurophysiology and molecular neurobiology.

Example text

Using cytochemical techniques, it has been shown that ribonucleoproteins are among the main components of Nissl bodies (Brachet 1940; Gersh and Bodian 1943); this accounts for their strong basophilia. In electron micrographs (Figs. , cisternae of the granular endoplasmic reticulum), and free polysomes occurring in the cytoplasmic matrix between the cisternae (Palay and Palade 1955). Most of the ribosomes in each Nissl body are set into the free polysomes occurring in the cytoplasmic matrix between the cisternae.

In this way, an autophagic vacuole, also called autophagosome, is formed. First observed in liver cells, autophagic vacuoles (Fig. 10) were subsequently detected in neurons by Novikoff and coworkers. Hydrolasecontaining vesicles, about 50 nm in diameter, are associated with the Golgi complex (see Sect. 3; see also Novikoff et al. 1971; Pannese et al. 1976). These vesicles, previously called primary lysosomes, coalesce with a late endosome or with an autophagic vacuole discharging their enzymes into the latter.

They have a globular or clubshaped body which contains the nucleus and sends out only one process; the latter runs for a variable distance (up to several hundred micrometers) and then expands in diameter and gives rise to several dendritic branches and to a single axon (Fig. 11). The dendrites ramify in the central core of the ganglion, participating in a dense meshwork of processes called the neuropil, while the axon leaves the ganglion and ends inside a muscle. Bipolar and multipolar neurons are also found in the peripheral plexuses of invertebrates.
