  1. Abbreviations: U = uninfected, I = infected, U or I is followed by mouse number; Co = Cortex; D = Diencephalon; H = Hippocampus; Ce = Cerebellum
  2. Scoring System: Meningitis scored 1 = mild; 2 = moderate; 3 = severe; PV cuffing 1 = mild; 2 = moderate; 3 = severe; Inflammatory Lesions scored according to number of lesions identified in one section; Calcifications Scored according to number of calcifications identified in one section; Cysts scored according to number of cysts identified in one section; Inflammation with cysts scored according to number of cysts adjacent to inflammatory lesion, by implication other cysts were 'sitting' in apparently normal brain.
