Striosome

Name: Striosome
Description: One of two compartments identified in the neostriatum, particularly the caudate nucleus, on the basis of differential staining for several biochemical markers such as acetylcholinesterase and calbindin. In individual sections, the striosomes appear as small patches of differentially high or low staining activity. In three dimensions, they form a 3D labyrinth extending throughout the caudate nucleus and in the putamen.
Synonym(s): Striosomal compartment, patch compartment
Is part of: Striosomal compartment of neostriatum
Super-category: Chemoarchitectural part of neostriatum
