Chronic (-) deprenyl (0.2 mg/kg, b.wt; for 25 days) treatment induced alterations in the dendritic morphology of prefrontal cortical neurons in adult Bonnett monkeys were evaluated in the present study. The branching points and intersections in apical and basal dendrites were studied up to a distance of 400 and 200 micrometers, respectively, in Golgi impregnated layer III pyramidal neurons of the prefrontal cortex. Our results revealed a significant (p<0.001) increase in the number of branching… CONTINUE READING
