Abstract

By means of the "close" function of the IBAS image analyzer it has been possible to determine if the transmitter-identified nerve cell bodies in an area are scattered or form clusters, since closely packed nerve cell bodies will unite by this procedure. The cell density of the cluster can be evaluated by considering the ratio between the area of its nerve cell profiles and the field area of the entire cluster. By this procedure a cluster of adrenaline nerve cell bodies have been discovered in the ventrolateral rostral reticular formation of the medulla oblongata belonging to the lateral part of adrenaline group C1.
