An operant conditioning study was carried out on Wistar rat pups of brain-growth-spurt age to assess the plasticity of apical dendritic branching and the numerical spine densities of CA3 pyramidal neurons of the hippocampus. In rapid Golgi-stained material we studied the effects of operant conditioning commencing at 16 days of age and terminating on the 23rd day of age. The data of the learning group (L) were compared with those of the sham experimental control group (E) and of the control… CONTINUE READING
