Previous studies have suggested that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is involved in memory and learning, and may be neuroprotective following various brain insults. Exercise has been found to increase BDNF mRNA levels in various brain regions, including specific subpopulations of hippocampal neurons. In the present study, we were interested in(More)
We investigated whether vacuolated cervical anterior horn cells of the wobbler mouse maintain axons to the periphery, and if these morphologically abnormal neurons are capable of supporting axonal regeneration. Using retrograde axonal transport, we applied horseradish peroxidase (HRP) to peripheral nerves or muscles and with electron microscopy sought(More)
