Abstract

The disposition of adrenaline- and noradrenaline-storing cells in the adrenal medulla has been studied in the rat. It has been demonstrated that no morphological or functional reason exists for the follicular designation of clumps of chromaffin cells in the medulla. No significant difference was found between the outer and inner zone as regards the frequency of NA cells by morphometric and statistical methods. The cytoarchitectural differences between adrenaline- and noradrenaline-storing cell arrangement are described. Special features of the interrelation between noradrenaline storing cells, cortical cells and the connective tissue framework are stressed. The light and electron microscopic appearance of 2 types of cortical cells, assumed to represent different states of functional activity, is described.
