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.
Results: It was observed on microscopic examination that EMF from 2G, 3G and 4G mobile phones effected the organization of Purkinje cell layer of cerebellum; being double cell layer in group B and multiple cell layers in groups C and D.
Conclusion: It was concluded from current results that radiations from 2G, 3G and 4G mobile phones have deleterious effects on the organization of Purkinje cell layer of cerebellum with 3G and 4G causing more harm as compared to EMF from 2G mobile phones.

The cortex further has three layers-molecular, Purkinje cell layer and granule cell layer.
The rationale of the present study was to identify the histomorphological changes induced by mobile phones electromagnetic fields on Purkinje cell layer of 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.
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.
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.
