The adult hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system undergoes activity-dependent, reversible morphological changes which result in reduced astrocytic coverage of its neurones and an increase in their synaptic contacts. Our recent observations show that neurones and glia of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system continue to express 'embryonic' molecular features which may underlie their capacity to undergo such plasticity. These include expression of cell surface molecules like the glycosyl… CONTINUE READING
