Pío del Rio-Hortega, one of many pioneering neuroscientists and discoverer of microglia, has been famous as probably the most vital Spanish neurohistogists of the previous century. His landmark examine on oligodendroglia, initially released in Spanish in 1928, has been translated into English for the 1st time by means of Dr. José R. Iglesias-Rozas and Prof. Manuel Garrosa. The publication establishes definitively the concept that of oligodendroglia and describes in nice element its constitution, forms, functionality, beginning and pathology, supplying a radical evaluation. the whole 1928 writing is gifted, together with the seventy nine very good drawings and pictures from the unique book.

To supplement the unique publication and supply old context, the translators have additionally incorporated an advent to the learn and a biography of Pío del Rio-Hortega. This booklet constitutes a milestone within the heritage of neuroscience, biology and drugs, and it'll be invaluable studying for researchers and practitioners in those fields.

  • First English translation of seminal 1928 research
  • Contains the huge descriptions and interpretations of the traditional and pathological oligodendroglia
  • Full unique textual content and new introductory sections

Example text

Indeed, we cannot accept that among genetically different elements relationships other than one of mere contiguity can exist. And as for morphological transitions, they are evidenced only by the use of imperfect techniques. , zigzag course, abundant dichotomies, terminal tufts, and collateral spines in microglial processes; undulating course, few divisions, frequently T-shaped, occasionally nodes, and a close relationship with nerve fibers, in the oligodendroglial appendages. 5 Textural Characteristics of Protoplasm in the Oligodendrocytes The general texture of the cytoplasm does not differ in some points from that of the astrocytes, but in other cases they fundamentally differ.

The cell processes and their branches tend to follow the guidance of nerve fibers and form complex ensheathings. 1). The main web of the white matter is constituted by the expansions of the oligodendroglia, which are intimately connected with nerve fibers to which they form special sheaths. 10G), although participating in the general web and spreading all over their very long processes, only show close relationship with the pia mater (astrocytes of the cerebral molecular layer, Bergmann’s cells, and so on) and with vessels, but not precisely as a means of separation.

3 Oligodendroglia of the cerebellar white matter of dog. The cells show very long knotty processes like fibers, interwoven in a simple plexus. 10). So most of the neural and vascular satellite elements correspond to the first type of oligodendrocytes, whose characteristic clusters can be observed in the gray parts of the cerebrum, cerebellum, and spinal cord and the white parts of the cerebral gyri. 4 Oligodendrocytes that form reticulated sheaths around the nerve fibers. A, second type element; B, C, and D, elements of the third type.
