Neonatal synapse elimination in the rat submandibular ganglion: effect of retarded target growth.


1. We have studied synapse elimination in the submandibular ganglion of neonatal rats to determine the effects of retarded target growth on synaptic development. Neurons of this ganglion provide parasympathetic innervation to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands. 2. Ligating the main salivary ducts 2-4 days after birth at a point where nerve… (More)
