The rapid Golgi method was used to describe the morphological maturation of substantia nigra (SN) neurons and the surrounding afferent axons. Observations were made from 25 kittens grouped at 1-3, 7-10, 18-24, and 40-55 days of age. Although variability in dendritic development among neurons is seen at each age, a common maturational sequence can be defined… CONTINUE READING
