We have recently demonstrated that fluid percussion injury (FPI) sustained early in life prevents the neural plasticity response associated with rearing in an enriched environment (EE). In order to determine if this reduction in plasticity capacity is reflected in alterations in dendritic arborization, the present study examined dendritic changes in response to EE, FPI, and FPI followed by EE. Twenty postnatal day 19-20 rat pups were subjected to FPI or sham injury and were subsequently housed… CONTINUE READING
