The spontaneous and evoked electrical patterns of spinal cord explants from 13- to 14-day old rat fetuses grown from 2 to 8 weeks in vitro were compared when fed either with a standard or with an adrenocorticotropic hormone/alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (4-10) analog (BIM 22015)-supplemented medium. Standard and BIM 22015-treated cultures developed(More)
The morphologic and functional properties of the Purkinje cells (P-cells) grown for 10-11 weeks in organotypic cultures from newborn kitten cerebella were studied and compared to cultures which had been grown for 4-5 weeks under the same standard conditions. Electrophysiological and morphological data were obtained from HRP iontophoretically labeled neurons(More)
Golgi-prepared cerebella from 1, 10, 13 and 30-day-old kittens were analyzed and compared with 30-45 days in vitro (DIV) HRP-stained organotypic cultures of newborn kitten cerebella. Computer reconstructions and morphometric parameters allowed a quantitative analysis of the Purkinje cell (P-cell) dendritic trees. In intact animals the dendritic organization(More)
