Embryonic mesencephalic and striatal co-grafts: development of grafted dopamine neurons and functional recovery.

Previous neural grafting studies have shown that embryonic dopamine neurons survive transplantation into the parenchyma of the brain; however, fiber outgrowth from those cells is often limited to the immediate vicinity of the graft. More extensive outgrowth is desirable for promoting and maintaining functional recovery of damaged neural systems in animal… (More)
