Downloads for RH04 (Coronal), 1 in 20 series
This series of sections has been prepared from a celloidin-embedded
rhesus (Macaca mulatta) brain, serially sectioned at a thickness of
40 microns in the coronal plane and stained by the Nissl stain.
The series of sections, as for the horizontal and sagittal series, was
scanned at 2,666 D.P.I., and the sections in the series presented here
are at approximately 800 micron intervals through the brain. Numbers at
top left indicate the exact position in mm.
The images are both in JPG and PSD file formats. The JPG images are much
smaller in file size (and thus quicker to download) and can be viewed in
your browser, but do not possess layers. The PSD images are best opened
in Photoshop in order to preserve the capacity to turn the layers on or
off. Each consists of four layers: a layer containing the image of the
histological section, registered to its neighbors on the basis of the
fiduciary marks; a layer consisting of one vertical line at lateral 5mm,
and two horizontal lines at horizontal 0mm and +10mm; a layer of type
showing the AP position of the section and labeling of key structures
using a standard abbreviation system; a template layer giving the
outlines of the section and of the larger grey and white matter
We are particularly interested in obtaining opinions about how best to
parcellate further many of the structures identified, especially the
cerebral cortex and brainstem reticular formation. Please let us have
your comments at jmstone-at-ucdavis.edu.
