Snails recover function following a variety of neural injuries. They grow new tentacles with associated tentacle ganglia, selectively reinnervate peripheral targets, repair central connections and may even replace lost neurons and ganglia. The plasticity revealed in their responses to neural injury is an extreme expression of the adaptability observed in studies of learning and age-related changes in the nervous system. Recent information on neurogenesis in gastropods is providing a basis for… CONTINUE READING
