Abstract/Summary This chapter provides the fundamental structural map of the spinal cord of the principal laboratory research animal, the rat. The rat spinal cord atlas is based on a set of Nissl stained transverse sections from a single spinal cord (the master set), supplemented by additional sections at each level stained with a range of chemical marker stains. The atlas includes features such as photographs of Nissl stained transverse sections from each of the spinal cord segments (obtained from a single unfixed spinal cord); detailed diagrams of each of the spinal cord segments delineating the laminae of Rexed and all other significant neuronal groupings at each level; photographs of additional sections displaying markers such as acetylcholinesterase (AChE), calbindin, calretinin, choline acetlytransferase, neurofilament protein (SMI 32), enkephalin, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), and neuronal nuclear protein (NeuN); and all the major motoneuron clusters identified in relation to the individual muscles or muscle groups they supply.
