The functional significance of dendritic spines and their morphological sensitivity to a wide spectrum of experimental manipulations and pathological states have led to a number of studies in which counts of dendritic spine number have been carried out. These studies have, for the most part, involved the enumeration of only those spines which protrude from the opaque shafts of Golgi-impregnated dendrites into the clear zones flanking the dendrite. Such counts, limited to only those spines which… CONTINUE READING
