Contribution of Scanning Electron Microscopy to Cerebellar Neurobiology

  • Orlando J. Castejón

Abstract

During the last three decades, progress in the development and application of biological techniques for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) has resulted in a marked increase in knowledge and comprehension of nerve tissue organization. An increasing number of investigations have attempted to reveal, the three-dimensional cellular SEM organization of different regions of the central nervous system (Abbate, Laura, Muglia, Vita, & Bronzetti, 1993; Allen & Didio, 1977; Antal, 1977; Asou, Murakami, Toda, & Uyemura, 1995; Baluk & Fujiwara, 1984; Berry et al., 1998; Bertmar, 1972; Boyde & Wood, 1969; Bredberg, 1979; Castejón, Castejón, Díaz, & Castellano, 2001d; Clementi & Marini, 1972; Cloyd & Low, 1974; Eagleson & Malacinski, 1986; Estable-Puig & Estable-Puig, 1975; Fasekas, Bacsy, & Rappay, 1978; Galbavy & Olson, 1979; Gross & De Boni, 1990; Hansson, 1970; Hartwig & Korf, 1978; Heavner, Coates, & Pacz, 2000; Kessel & Kardon, 1981; Kido & Sekitane, 1994; Kido, Sekitani, Okami, Endo, & Moriya, 1993; Kim, Kim, Moretto, & Kim, 1985; Krstic, 1974; Lametschwandtner, Simonsberg, & Adam, 1977; Lazzari & Franceschini, 2000; Lewis, 1971; Livesey & Fraher, 1992; Low, 1982; Mathew, 1998; Matsuda & Uehara, 1981; Meller & Denis, 1993; Merchant, 1979; Mestres & Rascher, 1994; Obsuki, 1972; Phillips, Balhorn, Leavitt, & Hoffman, 1974; Reina, Dittmann, López Garcia, & Van Zundert, 1997; Riesco et al., 1993; Saetersdal & Myklebust, 1975; Sanchez, Bilinski, González Nicolini, Villar, & Tramezzani, 1997; Sarphie, Carey, Davidson, & Soblosky, 1999; Scott, Kozlowski, Paul, Ramalingam, & Krobisch-Dudley, 1973; Seymour & Berry, 1975; Shotton, Heuser, Reese, & Reese, 1979; Siew, 1979; Tachibana, Takeuchi, & Fujiwara, 1985; Takahashi-I wanaga, Murakami, & Abe, 1998; Takumida, Miyawaki, Harada, & Annika, 1995; Tamega, Tirapelli, & 2000; Tanaka, lino, & Naguro, 1976; Yamadori, 1972).
