The capacity of regenerating axons for long-term growth and synaptic plasticity was investigated in the visual system of adult hamsters. Four to six and 8-10 months after the eye and the superior colliculus (SC) were linked by a peripheral nerve (PN) graft, the retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons that had regrown into the SC were examined ultrastructurally. Together with the data from hamsters with similar PN grafts for 2 months (Carter et al., 1989), this study spans most of the life of these… CONTINUE READING
