shell of the suprachiasmatic nucleus
The term shell of the suprachiasmatic nucleus refers to one of two divisions of the suprachiasmatic nucleus as demonstrated by Nissl and vasopressin stains in the macaque ( Paxinos-2009a ), rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and mouse ( Dong-2004 ). It is distinguishable by stain for vasopressin in the human, but not by Nissl stain ( Saper-2012 ). The other is the core of the suprachiasmatic nucleus.
