The sural and the lateral plantar nerves were implanted simultaneously into the denervated soleus muscle of adult mice. Each of these nerves contained approximately the normal number of soleus motor axons. This procedure therefore allowed a study of how an initial excessive number of motor axons provided by two different, foreign nerves and terminating into the soleus muscle affected the final pattern of muscle innervation. In muscles examined two months or more after the implantation of the… CONTINUE READING
