Gymnotiform fish, like all teleosts examined thus far, are distinguished by their enormous potential for the production of new neurons in the adult brain. In Apteronotus leptorhynchus, on average 10(5) cells, corresponding to approximately 0.2 % of the total population of cells in the adult brain, are in S-phase within any period of 2 h. At least a portion of these newly generated cells survive for the rest of the fish's life. This long-term survival, together with the persistent generation of… CONTINUE READING
