The dendritic structure of neurons in the inner one-third of the wall of the barrels of somatosensory cortex was examined in animals at 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 days of age. In adults, dendrites of these neurons project largely towards the barrel hollow. The amount of dendrite in the hemifield towards the barrel hollow, in which thalamic afferents terminate, increased with age, while the amount in the hemifield away from the hollow decreased, as measured by dendritic intersections with concentric… CONTINUE READING
