6 A transmission electron micrograph of a “light/pale” neuron. There is loss of Nissl substance and a dearth of membranous organelles in peripheral regions of the cell cytoplasm. 58 After periods of recirculation up to 48 h there is a clear differential between ischaemia susceptible and resistant cells. In the former there is “peripheral chromatolysis”54 with clustering of cytoplasmic organelles around the eccentric and irregularly shaped nucleus in about half the population of CA1 neurons. In a small proportion of cells, however, there is ischaemic cell change,57 where neurons are shrunken with electron-dense cytoplasm, pyknotic, fragmented nuclei, and disruption of plasma membranes.
