Morphological, ultrastructural and electrophysiological properties of endplates in the frog cutaneous pectoris muscle were monitored at various times after nerve crush. The lengths of regenerating terminals were measured in nitroblue tetrazolium-stained material. Quantal content and the frequency of spontaneous potentials were obtained from intracellular records, and they were correlated to individual terminal lengths in order to normalize their values to a standard unit of terminal length.
