An Organotypic Spinal Cord - Dorsal Root Ganglion - Skeletal Muscle Coculture of Embryonic Rat. II. Functional Evidence for the Formation of Spinal Reflex Arcs In Vitro.


Electrical properties of motoneurons, muscle fibres and dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells were studied in an organotypic coculture of embryonic rat spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia and skeletal muscle. The motoneurons were identified by their morphology and position in culture. Their size and input conductance were significantly larger than those of spinal… (More)
