Although it has been suggested that astroglia guide pioneering axons during development, the cellular and molecular substrates that direct axon regeneration in adult white matter have not been elucidated. We show that although adult cortical neurons were only able to elaborate very short, highly branched, dendritic-like processes when seeded onto organotypic slice cultures of postnatal day 35 (P35) rat brain containing the corpus callosum, adult dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons were able to… CONTINUE READING
