This study evaluates whether three forms of sprouting occur in the hippocampus of the cat following unilateral entorhinal cortex (EC) lesions: (1) sprouting of projections from the EC contralateral to the lesion; (2) sprouting of the commissural/associational system; and (3) sprouting of mossy fibers. 
Entorhinal axons exhibit sprouting in CA1 subfield of the adult hippocampus in a rat model of temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
A significant aberrant sprouting of entorhinal axons occurs into theCA1 stratum radiatum after CA3 lesion, which may lead to altered afferent excitatory connectivity in the CA1 subfield and contribute to the persistent CA1 hyperexcitability that occurs after the CA3Lesion. Expand
Denervation‐induced spatiotemporal upregulation of ephrin‐A2 in the mouse hippocampus after transections of the perforant path
TLDR
It is proved that the upregulation of ephrin‐A2 is proved in the denervated areas of the ipsilateral hippocampus following PP transections, suggesting that this molecule might also be implicated in the formation and maturation of synapses in theDenervate areas. Expand
Seizure-Induced Damage to Somatostatin-Immunoreactive Neurons in the Rat Hippocampus Is Regulated by Fimbria–Fornix Transection
TLDR
The results suggest that in the septal end of the hippocampus the severity of neuronal damage in the hilus is modulated by mechanism(s) that are dependent on the afferent pathways entering the hippocampus via the fimbria-fornix. Expand
CA3 axonal sprouting in kainate-induced chronic epilepsy
TLDR
The sprouting of CA3 outflow to widespread regions of the hippocampus and the entorhinal cortex may provide insight into how the injured hippocampus propagates unconventional impulse excitation to cortical fields which have a critical role in providing excitatory inputs into the hippocampus possibly setting up reverberating excite circuits as well as widespread connections throughout the cortical mantle. Expand
Spatial relational learning persists following neonatal hippocampal lesions in macaque monkeys
TLDR
It is shown that monkeys with neonatal hippocampal lesions learned new spatial relational information, suggesting that early hippocampal damage leads to functional brain reorganization that enables spatial information to be acquired through the use of brain regions that normally do not subserve this function. Expand
Unmasking recurrent excitation generated by mossy fiber sprouting in the epileptic dentate gyrus: an emergent property of a complex system.
TLDR
Quantitative analysis of the synaptic connections of the sprouted mossy fiber pathway, assessment of the functional features of sprouted circuitry using reliable physiological measures, and the perspective of complex systems analysis of neural circuits strongly support the view that the functional effects of the recurrent excitatory circuits formed by mossy Fiber sprouting after seizures or injury emerge only conditionally and intermittently. Expand
Quinolinic acid lesion of the rat entorhinal cortex pars medialis produces selective amnesia in allocentric working memory (WM), but not in egocentric WM
The functional role of the entorhinal cortex pars medialis in memory formation was investigated by lesioning this area with quinolinic acid, a selective agonist of the NMDA-subtype of glutamateExpand
Morphometric studies of the aged hippocampus: I. Volumetric analysis in behaviorally characterized rats
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the effects of aging are regionally selective and circuit specific, and they suggest that connectional reorganization may contribute to age‐related decline in the computational functions of the hippocampus. Expand
Alterations in hippocampal mossy fiber pathway in Schizophrenia and Alzheimer' s disease
TLDR
Examination of the density of mossy fibers arising from the dentate granule cells has not been previously report4ed for these two diseases and it is not known if they result in transneuronal changes of intrahippocampal connections. Expand
Seizure-Induced Axonal Sprouting: Assessing Connections Between Injury, Local Circuits, and Epileptogenesis.
TLDR
Study of mossy fiber sprouting has provided a strong theoretical and conceptual framework for efforts to understand how seizures and injury may contribute to epileptogenesis and its consequences, and it is likely that investigation of Mossy Fiber sprouting will continure to offer significant opportunities for insights into seizure-induced plasticity of neural circuits at molecular, cellular, and systems levels.

Developmental differences in post-lesion axonal growth in the hippocampus.
TLDR
Two types of post-lesion growth were observed: an increase of the density of innervation in areas normally occupied by commissural fibers, and a movement of commISSural fibers into dendritic areas in which they are not found in normal rats. Expand
Cells of origin of entorhinal cortical afferents to the hippocampus and fascia dentata of the rat
The pathway from the entorhinal cortical region to the hippocampal formation has previously been shown to be comprised of two sub‐systems, one of which projects predominantly to the ipsilateralExpand
Reinnervation of dentate gyrus by homologous afferents following entorhinal cortical lesions in adult rats.
Granule cells of the rat dentate gyrus which are denervated by unilateral destruction of the entorhinal cortex are reinnervated in part by proliferation of surviving pathways from the contralateralExpand
Lesion‐induced sprouting of hippocampal mossy fiber collaterals to the fascia dentata in developing and adult rats
A lesion‐induced formation of an abnormal projection of hippo‐ campal mossy fiber collaterals to the molecular layer of the fascia dentata was studied in rats. Both immature (1–30 days old) and adultExpand
Lesion‐induced mossy fibers to the molecular layer of the rat fascia dentata: Identification of postsynaptic granule cells by the Golgi‐EM technique
TLDR
Using the combined Golgi‐electron microscopy (EM) technique, it is demonstrated that aberrant supragranular mossy fibers at least in part terminate on granule cell dendrites. Expand
Anatomical evidence for a projection from the entorhinal cortex to the contralateral dentate gyrus of the rat
TLDR
The demonstration of this projection in normal rats indicates the changes following recovery from unilateral entorhinal lesions need not involve extensive new fiber growth as had been previously hypothesized, further illustrating the principle of the bilaterality of hippocampal projections. Expand
Experiments to determine whether retinogeniculate axons can form translaminar collateral sprouts in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus of the cat

TLDR
A section of one optic nerve produces a curious pattern of cell survival in the denervated geniculate laminae, giving the impression that these cells are sustained by collaterals arising from the normal retinogeniculate axons. Expand
Crossed pathways from the entorhinal area to the fascia dentata. I. Normal in rabbits

TLDR
The commissural connections of the hippocampal formation have been analyzed in the monkey using both anterograde and retrograde labeling techniques and a number of striking differences are observed. Expand

TLDR
The present experiments indicate that following entorhinal cortical lesions in mature cats the final post‐lesion pattern of altered AChE staining is quite comparable to that which is observed following similar lesions in rats. Expand
