With the assumption that nerve fibers are cylindrical tubes and the length of fibers is much longer than the thickness of sections plus the diameter of the fibers, the external diameter of the myelinated fibers was estimated by measuring the longest profile diameter perpendicular to its longest axis (Tang and Nyengaard, 1997; 2004) (Fig.
The CE values for the estimates of the total volume and length of myelinated fibers in the white matter were calculated from the estimated coefficient of error for the corresponding component densities and the coefficient of error for white matter volume.
The mean length density and the mean volume density of the myelinated fibers in the white matter are 1.
The total length and total volume of the myelinated fibers and the total volume of the myelin sheaths in the white matter were obtained by multiplying the density estimates by the white matter volume.
The myelinated fibers in the white matter are arranged irregularly, which complicates the precise quantitation.
The estimation of the length density and volume density of the myelinated fibers in the white matter demands the identification of the profiles of myelinated fibers.
In the present study, we quantitatively investigated the white matter and the myelinated fibers of the white matter in the rat brain and compared this data with the human brain.
