|dc.description.abstract||The comparative structure of the diencephalon was investigated in the elephant shrew, the tree-shrew and several of the prosimian and anthropoid primates, including man. The brains were perfused with and fixed in formol saline. Most of those brains were sectioned transversely; others horizontally and sagitaliy. Sections of the diencophalon were stained with the cresyl-echt violet method for cytology and the study of cytoarchitectonics, and with the Kluver and Barrera, and Simmons techniques for myeloarchitectonics.||en_ZA|
