Early events of secondary degeneration after partial optic nerve transection: an immunohistochemical study.


Secondary degeneration in the central nervous system involves indirect damage to neurons and glia away from the initial injury. Partial transection of the dorsal optic nerve (ON) results in precise spatial separation of the primary trauma from delayed degenerative events in ventrally placed axons and parent somata. Here we conduct an immunohistochemical… (More)
