The present study was focussed on the typology of small and medium-sized neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the domestic fowl as revealed by means of Golgi impregnation. This region is provided with different systems of neurons that can be distinguished on the basis of their location and dendritic morphology. Intraependymal neurons and CSF-contacting nerve cells are found in the periventricular layer together with bipolar elements endowed with processes extending parallel to the surface of the third ventricle. The short axons of these neurons may contact the magnocellular elements. Numerous isodendritic neurons are scattered throughout the entire PVN; these nerve cells possessing short and branched axons may be considered as local-circuit neurons. The complex intrinsic organization of the PVN of the domestic fowl might provide the structural basis for local interactions among the neuronal elements of this hypothalamic region.

Abstract

The present study was focussed on the typology of small and medium-sized neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the domestic fowl as revealed by means of Golgi impregnation. This region is provided with different systems of neurons that can be distinguished on the basis of their location and dendritic morphology. Intraependymal neurons and CSF-contacting nerve cells are found in the periventricular layer together with bipolar elements endowed with processes extending parallel to the surface of the third ventricle. The short axons of these neurons may contact the magnocellular elements. Numerous isodendritic neurons are scattered throughout the entire PVN; these nerve cells possessing short and branched axons may be considered as local-circuit neurons. The complex intrinsic organization of the PVN of the domestic fowl might provide the structural basis for local interactions among the neuronal elements of this hypothalamic region.
