Your question is not quite clear : do you talk about human striatum, or
other species (cat's ?) ; of an adult , I presume ?
Are you looking for the volume per cell (cell volume) or looking for the
total mass of  the corpus striatum (total number of cells in that
The volume as such ? or the mass (in weight) ?
Unilateral of bilateral (= total of brain ?)

Try to be more detailed, if you'd like someone to help you..
