PMID:  9131304     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of the human lateral vestibular nucleus was studied on serial sections of the brain of 8 fetuses and neonates at 12-40 weeks of gestation, an infant at 2 months of age and an adult of 63 years using a microscope with a drawing tube and an image-analysing computer system. A morphometric analysis revealed that the lateral vestibular nucleus, whose neurons were distinguished from glia after 16 weeks of gestation, divided cytoarchitectonically into the medial and the lateral subnuclei at 21 weeks of gestation onwards, and showed the moderate development in terms of the columnar length and volume, neuronal size and neuropil.
