Novel morphological data about neurons and glial cells in the human medial amygdaloid nucleus were obtained. This nucleus has more neurons in the left hemisphere and more glia (72% of all cells) than neurons. Five types of multipolar neurons were found, fusiform ones were the most frequent. Pleomorphic spines, complex axonal collateral terminations, and ramified protoplasmic astrocytes were observed. At the ultrastructural level, there were asymmetric and symmetric synaptic sites and multisynaptic glomerular-like terminals.
