Variable shapes of placentae were derived by changing in the arborisation of the vascular tree.
(53) A general characterisation of structural plasticity in the brain's reward circuitry describes altered dendrite branching or arborisation and changes in the density or morphometry of dendritic spines.
(27) OCTA allows characterisation of the CNVM by its size, morphology or shape, vessel dimensions and even arborisation (branching) of the vascular network, a feature that is generally not seen with FA.
More detailed histological studies of the cortical areas followed by Camillo Golgi (1843-1926) who developed the first staining of neurons [9] and their arborisation. This silver impregnation method enabled Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) to investigate in detail the pattern of axonal and dendrite connections of the neuronal tissue [10].
The lack of interest for massive arborisation, the inefficiency of the state authorities in maintaining the wealth thus created (proof of which are the forest fires that raged the hillside areas in the absence of the former owners), the rural communities' protests against the occupation of 'their' lands, the artificial, not to say parasitic, nature of the management carried out by many local authorities, all this gave way, with the advent of political changes towards democratic practices, to a number of legislative initiatives seeking to hand back the Montes and Baldios to the local communities.
(4-7) Unlike PA-VSD, patients with the standard type of TOF with pulmonary atresia have pulmonary arteries that are usually normal in size with normal peripheral pulmonary arborisation. In addition, systemic-to-pulmonary collateral vessels are not as well developed in patients with TOF with pulmonary atresia as they are in patients with PA-VSD.
