Cyto- and Chemoarchitecture of the Cortex of the Tammar Wallaby (Macropus eugenii): Areal Organization

Ashwell, Ken W S; Zhang, L-L; Marotte, Lauren


We have examined the cyto- and chemoarchitecture of the isocortex of a diprotodontid marsupial, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii), using Nissl staining in combination with enzyme histochemical (acetylcholinesterase - AChE, NADPH-diaphorase - NADPHd, cytochrome oxidase) and immunohistochemical (non-phosphorylated neurofilament - SMI-32) markers. The primary sensory cortex showed distinctive patterns of reactivity in cytochrome oxidase, acetylcholinesterase and NADPH diaphorase. For example,...[Show more]
