If the lateral olfactory tract (LOT) of the golden hamster is transected in the first week of postnatal life, axons will grow back through the cut and reinnervate the terminal regions. Functional recovery occurs only when the terminal regions are reinnervated. The experiments reported here tested the hypothesis that reinnervation is due to neogenesis: the continued growth of newly formed axons which were not severed by the lesion. In the first experiment the birth dates of the mitral and tufted… CONTINUE READING
