- adj. hyperchromic
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Excessively pigmented.
- Staining with extreme facility.
The data already in hand, and the experiments now in progress, in which anesthetized animals are subjected to powerful stimuli applied to certain parts of the body only, or simultaneously to all parts of the body, lead us to believe that in the former case the brain-cells become stimulated or hyperchromatic, while in the latter case no brain-cell changes occur.
We found, however, that if, instead of natural sleep, the rabbits were placed for the same number of hours under nitrous oxid anesthesia, not only did the brain-cells recover from the physical deterioration, but that 90 per cent. of them became hyperchromatic.
Brighton's Ital Tek peddles a similar line in hyperchromatic dubstep variations as his sorta-contemporaries in Bristol, Joker, Gemmy and Guido.
[f] The hyperchromatic cells show that the first effect of fright is to stimulate the cells to meet the increased demand.
[f] The protective effect of morphin is illustrated by the large percentage of hyperchromatic cells.
[b] Note the absence of hyperchromatic cells in B and the signs of disintegration in the cells indicated by the arrows.
[d] Note in B the absence of hyperchromatic cells, the hypochromatic condition of all the Purkinje cells, and the almost complete disintegration of the cells indicated by arrows.
