A developmental gradient of dendritic loss in the avian cochlear nucleus occurring independently of primary afferents.


Cochlear nerve axons and their target neurons in nucleus magnocellularis (NM) of the chicken undergo extensive parallel structural transformations during development. Between embryonic days 12 and 17 (E12-E17), each immature highly branched axon condenses into a mature calyxlike ending applied to a single NM neuron. Simultaneously, NM neurons are… (More)
