The Human Brain Circulation: Functional Changes in Disease

A lot of our wisdom of the cerebral stream has been derived from reviews of species except human. there's increas­ ing attractiveness of species variations and main issue that experiences in animals might be deceptive if unquestioningly utilized to the human. A dramatic instance of this happened within the early his­ tory of the learn of the circulate of the mind.

F r e e z i n g or Q u e n c h i n g t h e T i s s u e s W h e n a tissue is frozen, cellular and extra-cellular water usually freeze at different rates so that depending on the speed of freezing ice crystals are formed (Merryman, 1950, 1960). I n the ideal physical state where only water is present vitreous ice is formed with rapid freezing (Pryde and Jones, 1957), b u t it is doubtful whether this ever happens in biological material where there is a rapidly changing complex of solutes. T h e tissue is damaged by the formation of large ice crystals to an extent which makes sectioning difficult or impossible and which results in a distortion of the subsequent histological detail.

Sectioning. See description for animal material. Smears or squashes Smears or squashes can be effectively used for autoradiography. Preparations m a d e by any of the standard techniques are fixed and washed, and then set u p for autoradiography as described for sections. IV. S e t t i n g u p A u t o r a d i o g r a p h s If sections from e m b e d d e d material are used it is necessary to remove all of the wax before the application of photographic emulsion. For smears and squashes, proceed straight to "Application of emulsion".
