  • Note: The characteristics provided for this cell class are based on the most abundant data in the field, which are from young adult rats. There could be species-specific, age-specific, and even gender-specific differences. For example, monkey and rat differ in cytoarchitectonic structure and quantitative cell morphology.
  • Soma Shape: granulewarning.png":Category:Granule Soma Quality" is not in the list of possible values (Pear, Round, Pyramid, Mitral) for this property.
  • Dendrite Ultrastructure: Spiny
