The superior cerebellar peduncles are thickened and have an abnormal horizontal course.
Microscopically in all animals, the lesions were pathognomonic for a highly neurotropic viral encephalomyelitis and included moderate to marked lymphocytic cell perivascular cuffing and neuronal and ganglionic degeneration and necrosis, with microgliosis but minimal meningitis, especially in the dorsal and ventral horns of the spinal cord gray matter and multifocally in the medulla oblongata, cerebellar peduncles, and midbrain (Figure 3).
They involve corpus callosum, internal capsule, cerebellar peduncles and juxtacortical areas.
For studies on PN5, PN10, PN15, and PN21, brains were dissected into three regions: blunt cuts were made through the cerebellar peduncles, whereupon the cerebellum (including flocculi) was lifted from the underlying tissue.
