One hundred days after unilateral C-row nerve transection in the adult mouse whiskerpad, the caudal follicles of row C are reinnervated with approximately 80 % of the original number of axons [Corthésy, M.-E., Bronchti, G. & Welker, E. (1999) Eur. J. Neurosci. , 11, 2835-2846]. To what extent is this reinnervation functional, and how does it interact with the enlargement of the functional representation of neighbouring rows subsequent to the denervation? Using the autoradiographic deoxyglucose… CONTINUE READING
