Substantia gelatinosa

Name: Substantia gelatinosa
Description: Gray matter region of spinal cord gray matter that caps the posterior horn at all spinal levels.
Synonym(s): Rexed lamina II
Is part of: Spinal cord dorsal horn
Super-category: Regional part of brain
Id: nlx_259
Defining criteria: cyto-architecture, myelo-architecture
Organism: mammal
Link to OWL / RDF: Download this content as OWL/RDF
Defining Criteria: cyto-architecture, myelo-architecture
Cyto-architecture defining Criteria: High density of small neurons
Myelo-architecture defining Criteria: In myelin stained preparations, this region looks pale caompared with the rest of the gray matter because it contains many finely myelinated and unmyelinated sensory fibers (Nolte, The Human Brain, 6th ed., p 235)
Overlaps : Rexed lamina II
