Surface morphology of the subfornical organ: Effects of low and high sodium chloride diet

  • R. E. Gomez
  • M. A. Cannata


Ependymal cells found in the subfornical organ of the rat were counted. Cells covered by small microvilli, small protrusions and smooth cells were frequently found. Also present were cells with long or short cilia, cels with large protrusions and supraependymal cells. High and low sodium diets reduced the number of cells with large protrusions. Microvilli-covered cells increased after a low sodium diet.
