Transverse section of the spinal cord of a chicken (HE): detail of the accessory lobe of Lachi
The central part of the accessory lobes consist of multipolar neurons, myelinated and unmyelinated axons, glycogen cells, glial cells and capillaries, as described earlier. Extracellular lacunae run radially from the dorsal side towards the contact side with the lateral ligament. The lacunae are zones in between the cell bodies, filled with axons, dendrites with fingerlike processes and processes of glycogen cells and astroglial cells (not visible on light microscopic pictures). The lacunae are separated from the subarachnoidal space by the basal lamina formed by the glycogen cells.
