Continuous replacement of sensory neurons is a normal process in the olfactory system of adult vertebrates. The capacity for replacement following experimentally induced degeneration of sensory neurons makes this system ideal for the study of the dynamics of neural populations. A quantitative analysis was made to determine the time course and degree of cell replacement in the olfactory epithelium following unilateral bulbectomy in adult hamsters. Histological measurements of number of cells and… CONTINUE READING
