Nerve Degeneration and Regeneration Rowena's & Nia's Notes Rowena's Notes 1) Is Activity Necessary for Synaptic Elimination?


    Experimental data supports two opposing views of the role of activity in SE. A large proportion of literature suggests that active axons have a competitive advantage over the less active. Preventing activity with TTX in all motor neurons delays SE, whilst increasing activity accelerates it. As SE is only delayed by the absence of activity & not abolished… (More)
