Comment Claiborne et al JCN 1990 (PMID: 2289972), The characteristics provided for this cel 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. tructure and quantitative cell morphology., Acsady et al J Neurosci 1998 (PMID:9547246)
