> Hi,
> I hope someone can help me,
> I have a question about brainstem. I have many sections of midbrain on
> microscope slides and i'm going count the dopaminergic cells. Some of the
> slides show a complete transverse section of midbrain and some have half a
> section. On a slide stained with cresyl violet, are there any visible
> differences between the right and left sides of the brainstem? i.e. in my
> slides where I only have half a section, can I tell if I am looking at the
> right or left side of the brain?
> I hope this makes sense :)
> TIA,
