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 :
and also :
Stretton AOW, and Kravitz EA (1968) : Neuronal geometry : Determination with
a technique of intracellular dye injection ;
Science (Washington) 162 : 132-134
Hydén H., (1960) The Neuron. In : The Cell, Vol. 4 (J. Brachet and A.E.
Mirsky, editors). Academic Press, London and New York,
I'm not sure it's in there, but it might be possible...
