Ultrastructural changes in the primary focus during cobalt induced amygdaloid epilepsy in rabbit


Pakistan Journal of Zoology 9(1): 1-10
Ultrastructural changes in the primary focus during cobalt induced amygdaloid epilepsy in rabbit
The metallic Co powder was applied to the basal amygdaloid nucleus of adult male rabbits, as an epileptogenic agent. On the 7th day after Co application, the following degenerative changes were observed in the primary focus under the EM; nucleolus in some neurons was disintegrated contour of gliocyte nuclei was disturbed, the electron density of cytoplasm in some nuclei increased, myelin sheath swelled and lost its regular structure, the number of synaptic vesicles increased and the synaptic endings and matrix darkened.
