Cyto- and Myeloarchitectonics: Two Aspects of the same Reality
What leaps to the eye in the Nissl picture viewed at low magnification is the alternation of “darker” and “lighter” layers. At a higher magnification it becomes obvious that the darkness is composed out of two parameters, number and size of neural cell bodies. (We neglect another possible source of variation, the density of Nissl bodies within the perikaryon.) How can we interpret these two variables in terms of connectivity?
