In an embryonic chicken, transection of the thoracic spinal cord prior to embryonic day (E) 13 (of the 21-day developmental period) results in complete neuroanatomical repair and functional locomotor recovery. Conversely, repair rapidly diminishes following a transection on E13-E14 and is nonexistent after an E15 transection. The myelination of fiber tracts(More)
1. The selectivity of adaptation to unidirectional motion was examined in neurons of the cat striate cortex. Following prolonged stimulation with a unidirectional high-contrast grating, the responsivity of cortical neurons was reduced. In many units this decrease was restricted to the direction of prior stimulation. This selective adaptation produced(More)
Recent results have demonstrated complete anatomical and functional repair of descending brainstem-spinal projections in chicken embryos that underwent thoracic spinal cord transection prior to embryonic day 13 (E13) of the 21 d developmental period. To determine to what extent axonal regeneration was contributing to this repair process, we conducted(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the developmental stage of the chick embryo when descending spinal tracts lose the capacity for anatomical and functional repair after complete transection of the thoracic spinal cord. Previous studies have demonstrated that the first reticulospinal projections descend to the lumbar cord by embryonic day (E) 5. A(More)
This study was designed to examine the period of embryonic chick development during which descending brainstem-spinal projections, originating from defined avian brainstem locomotor regions, become functionally active. Locomotor activity was examined using a new in ovo preparation for the focal electrical stimulation of embryonic brainstem locomotor(More)
Proteins which share zinc finger DNA binding motifs comprise one of the main families of transcription factors. We have previously described rKr1, a new rat Cys2/Hys2 zinc finger gene of the Krüppel gene family. This gene is predominantly expressed in the nervous system, with highest abundance in neurons and with lower abundance in developing(More)
