The results of qualitative and quantitative studies of hippocampal pyramidal layer of the right hemisphere of rats in mod- elled hypertensive encephalopathy were presented. We revealed a reduction in the specific area of perikaryon in CA1, CA2, and CA3, an increase in the specific number of damaged neurons in all areas, as well as a decrease in the aver- age area of perikaryonic neurons in the areas CA1 and CA3, which demonstrated that the processes of reversible and irreversible damage occurred in modelled hypertensive encephalopathy.
