Volume of neurons (striatum)

Dear Gunther,

A preliminary search in my textbooks resulted in a possible source that
might be of help to you :

Graybiel AM, Ragsdale CV jr (1983)  : Biochemical Anatomy of the Striatum.
In : Chemical Neuroanatomy, Emson PC, ed. New York :
Raven Press.

and also :

Stretton AOW, and Kravitz EA (1968) : Neuronal geometry : Determination with
a technique of intracellular dye injection ;
Science (Washington) 162 : 132-134

and

Hydén H., (1960)  The Neuron. In : The Cell, Vol. 4 (J. Brachet  and A.E.
Mirsky, editors). Academic Press, London and New York,
pp.215-323.

I'm not sure it's in there, but it might be possible...
("So, don't shoot the pianist.. he's doing his best..")

Kind regards,         Joris.
