  1. Significant differences between the right and left cerebral hemisphere were found for the caudate nucleus (p < 0.0001) and the piriform lobe including the amygdala (p < 0.01). Significant differences between normal and diseased dogs were found for the piriform lobe including the amygdala and for the seminoval centre. Normal values are from the publication about normal dogs [32]
