A series of studies has examined the response of the spinal cord to lesions made at various stages prior to and after metamorphic climax in the clawed frog Xenopus laevis. Complete transections made between Nieuwkoop and Faber (1956) stages 50 and 62 were followed by gradual recovery of righting and coordinated swimming as animals metamorphosed into juveniles (stage 66). Examination of descending axonal projections using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) showed fibers crossing the lesion site and… CONTINUE READING
