Recently, an age-related increase in the number of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells was reported in adult rats. This suggests neurogenesis of adult primary afferent neurons, which would be an extremely important phenomenon if it occurred. Other evidence is not compatible with this idea, however, so the issue is not settled. The primary point of contention concerns the counts of DRG cells in relation to age. In our opinion, these disagreements arise, at least in part, because different counting… CONTINUE READING
