Histomorphological study on neurons of cingulate gyrus and substantia nigra in various developmental stages of albino mice exposed to stress

2012-01-11 Hemalatha Bangera

To study the Harmful effect of stress in different age groups of albinomice by restraint and foot shock stress. On literature survey there are no reports on the neuronal cell count, cellular morphology, and dendritic morphology in stress of different duration in different developmental age group on cingulate gyrus and substantia nigra. This study will have an implication in understanding the patho-psychology of stress related disorders.
