Estimates of the numbers of spinal motoneurones in relation to growth in the eel, Anguilla, were made by counting the axons contained within the ventral roots. Motoneuronal size was determined as the surface area of cell somata labelled retrogradely from applications of tracer (horseradish peroxidase, cobalt lysine) to the musculature or spinal nerves. The sizes and numbers of muscle fibres from red and white portions of the myotomal musculature were determined from frozen sections… CONTINUE READING
