24-h postketamine injection, the myelinated nerve fibers were separated from each other and form cystic structures, and Schwann cell cytoplasm was pressed.
All the three never fiber markers, namely PGP 9.5, TH, and VIP, were found to surround the eccrine sweat glands, indicating human eccrine sweat glands are innervated by both sympathetic adrenergic and sympathetic cholinergic nerves, which are consistent with previous studies.[1],[3],[10] However, until now, it was unknown whether the two components of eccrine sweat glands are equally innervated by sympathetic nerve fibers. To address the issue, we investigated the innervation of different components of eccrine sweat glands by double IF staining for nerve fiber markers and eccrine sweat gland markers.

Assessment of optic nerve head appearance can be divided into two parts, qualitative which includes evaluation of the contour of the neuro-retinal rim, appearance of the nerve fiber layer (NFL), presence of optic disc hemorrhages, extent of para-papillary atrophy and colour of the optic nerve head, while quantitative findings are Optic disc size (vertical disc diameter VDD), Cup disc ratio (CDR), and Rim disc ratio (RDR)10-12.
