Early and selective loss of neuromuscular synapse subtypes with low sprouting competence in motoneuron diseases.

Abstract

The addition or loss of synapses in response to changes in activity, disease, or aging is a major aspect of nervous system plasticity in the adult. The mechanisms that affect the turnover and maintenance of synapses in the adult are poorly understood and are difficult to investigate in the brain. Here, we exploited a unique anatomical arrangement in the… (More)
