Neuronal morphogenesis, the growth and arborization of neuronal processes, is an essential component of brain development. Two important but seemingly disparate components regulating neuronal morphology have previously been described. In the hippocampus, neurotrophins, particularly brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophin-3 (NT3), act to(More)
The ability of neurons to modify synaptic connections is critical for proper brain development and function in the adult. It is now clear that changes in synaptic strength are often accompanied by changes in synaptic morphology. This synaptic plasticity can be maintained for varying lengths of time depending on the type of neuronal activity that first(More)
