Studies of Thalamic Degeneration Following Cerebral Lesions

  • J. M. Van Buren
  • R. C. Borke


The following 54 cases are presented as montages of drawings including every 100th section through the hemisphere and every 40th section through the thalamus. The nomenclature and methods have been presented and discussed in Chapters 1 and 2. Using the abbreviations of this nomenclature, a summary of the areas of destruction and degeneration is presented at the start of each anatomical description. The conventions used on the drawings to indicate gliosis, neuron change, and demyelination are shown in Fig. 98. Black indicates total destruction of tissue.
