Essential functions of synapsins I and II in synaptic vesicle regulation
SYNAPTIC vesicles are coated by synapsins, phosphoproteins that account for 9% of the vesicle protein1-3. To analyse the functions of these proteins, we have studied knockout mice lacking eitherExpand

Perineuronal nets provide a polyanionic, glia‐associated form of microenvironment around certain neurons in many parts of the rat brain
The nature and function of previously described perineuronal nets are still obscure. In the present study their polyanionic components were demonstrated in the rat brain using colloidal ironExpand

Biphasic reorganization of somatotopy in the primary motor cortex follows facial nerve lesions in adult rats
Effects of facial nerve transection were studied on muscle responses evoked by electrical stimulation in the primary motor cortex (MI) of adult rats. In intact animals, activated muscles variedExpand

Synaptic and non-synaptic cholinergic innervation of the various types of neurons in the main olfactory bulb of adult rat: Immunocytochemistry of choline acetyltransferase
The cholinergic neuronal structures and their synaptic connections in the main olfactory bulb of adult rats were analysed by using choline acetyltransferase immunocytochemistry. Within the glomeruli,Expand

Rapid morphological changes in astrocytes are accompanied by redistribution but not by quantitative changes of cytoskeletal proteins
Astrocytes have the potential to acquire very different morphologies, depending on their regional location in the CNS and on their functional interactions with other cell types. Morphological changesExpand

Activation of the primary motor cortex by somatosensory stimulation in adult rats is mediated mainly by associational connections from the somatosensory cortex
In anaesthetized adult rats, facial nerve injury causes a disinhibition of the interhemispheric connections between homotopic representation fields in the primary motor cortex with a latency of 4 minExpand

Neuronal plasticity induced by neonatal monocular (and binocular) enucleation
Monocular (ME) and binocular enucleation has become a useful experimental tool for analyzing the mechanisms of neural plasticity. ME when performed during an early postnatal period (up to 15 daysExpand

A reliable and sensitive method to localize terminal degeneration and lysosomes in the central nervous system.
After reconsidering the physicochemical mechanisms involved in the so-called degeneration methods for the demonstration of axons and nerve terminals, the method of Eager was fundamentally modified inExpand

Developmental biology of the common marmoset: proposal for a "postnatal staging".
The published knowledge on neurobiological, psychological, and ethological aspects of development in Callithrix jacchus is still limited. We have collected published and unpublished data from severalExpand

Distribution of astroglia in glomeruli of the rat main olfactory bulb: Exclusion from the sensory subcompartment of neuropil
During an entire lifetime, sensory axons of regenerating olfactory receptor neurons can enter glomeruli in the olfactory bulb and establish synaptic junctions with central neurons. The role played byExpand
