Existing Anatomical Parameters and the Need for Further Determinations for Various Tissue Structures
Vascular patterns within the central nervous system differ considerably from one part of the brain to another but in each area are characteristic of the region (Lockard et al., 1959). Indeed the architectural pattern of the blood vessels corresponds so precisely to the pattern of the nerve cells that each small area can be identified on the basis of its blood vessels alone (figs. 1 and 2). By the use of histochemical techniques the density of blood vessels has been shown to correspond to the metabolic activity of each area (Friede, 1961).
