Dendritic growth cones and recurrent basal dendrites are typical features of newly generated dentate granule cells in the adult hippocampus.


Granule cells in the hippocampal dentate gyrus are generated throughout adulthood of mammals, and recent studies indicate that they are incorporated into neural circuitry and mature into functional neurons. To determine whether newly generated granule cells form dendritic growth cones during this process of synaptogenesis, we used the immunocytochemical… (More)
