I read on my textbook and here that: http://www.courseweb.uottawa.ca/medicine-histology/english/Renal/Default.htm
But then there are websites that says: http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-the-renal-cortex.htm
I think the cortex should be darker in color since the majority of the capillaries is in the cortex(or is it?), but I can’t be sure… 😕
Please help! Thanks! 🙂
u r right about renal medulla and ur reason is right too.its just that all medulla’s are not lighter than their corresponding cortex .
