We are interested in the trophic influence of inhibitory synaptic transmission during neuronal maturation. The morphology of dendrites in the gerbil lateral superior olive (LSO) was examined following pharmacological blockade of glycine receptors during postnatal development. The normally occurring change in dendrite morphology during the third postnatal week was prevented. Dendrites had a significantly greater number of branch points, and their arbors were more spread out along the frequency… CONTINUE READING
