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