The staining intensity was evaluated according to the immunoreactivity-staining score, first introduced by Remmele et al [25] based on the semiquantitative scoring of cell staining as follows: grade (-), no staining; grade 1 (+), mild but definite staining; grade 2 (++), moderate staining; grade 3 (+++), strong staining.
Cell staining combined with computer-enhanced reconstructions of neurons showed that the schizophrenia group had a much lower density of projections from neurons in a specific tissue layer of the frontal cortex, the scientists report in the January ARCHIVES Or GENERAL PSYCHIATRY.
