Purkinje cell layer

Pur·kin·je cell lay·er

(pŭr-kin'jē),
the layer of large neuron cell bodies located at the interface of molecular and granular layers in the cerebellar cortex; dendrites of these cells fan outward into the molecular layer in a plane transverse to the folium and axons enter the white matter.

Objective: To study and compare the histomorphological changes induced by second generation (2G), third generation (3G) and fourth generation (4G) mobile phone electromagnetic fields on the organization of Purkinje cell layer of rat cerebellum.
G-CSF receptors are expressed in pyramidal neurons in the cortex (mainly layers II/III and V), the Purkinje cell layer of the cerebellum, the hippocampus (hilus and CA3 field), the entorhinal cortex and the olfactory bulb.
The Purkinje cells were arranged in one row at D7 to form a Purkinje cell layer. The Purkinje cells became more developed and mature at D15 and D30.
Histopathogical findings include widening of the molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex with replacement by abnormal ganglion cells, absence of the Purkinje cell layer, and hypertrophy of the granular cell layer.(5) Clinically, the duration of symptoms is variable, ranging from a few months to over 10 years.
They then further migrate past the Purkinje cell layer to settle away from the pial surface.
The cerebellar cortex was formed of three layers: outer molecular layer (M), middle Purkinje cell layer (P) and inner granular layer (G) (Fig.
Photograph of the same area of the Purkinje cell layer were obtained from sets of semi thin sections of the cerebellum and then analysed at final magnification of 1400x.
Gray (1961) opined that the granule cell bodies form a layer that extends from the sub cortical white matter to the Purkinje cell layer. Its thickness varies, being only 30 [micro]m in the trough but exceeding 200 [micro]m in the summit of the folia.
Their cell bodies were relatively close, or within the Purkinje cell layer (Stratum purkinjense).
Following either fluid percussion injury or controlled-cortical impact, activated microglia are organized perpendicular to the Purkinje cell layer (Fukuda et al., 1996; Mautes et al., 1996).
