Geometry of neonatal neurones and the regulation of synapse elimination

  title={Geometry of neonatal neurones and the regulation of synapse elimination},
  author={Richard I. Hume and Dale Purves},
In the ciliary ganglion of adult rabbits, ganglion cells lacking dendrites are generally innervated by a single axon, whereas cells with one or more dendrites are innervated by a number of different axons that increases in proportion to the complexity of their dendritic arbor1 (see also refs 2–4). We have now explored the basis of this correlation by comparing the dendritic arborizations of cells receiving different numbers of axons during and after the period of synapse elimination that occurs… CONTINUE READING
