Dendritic arborizations of neurons in the adult rat superior cervical ganglion were measured in control ganglia and in ganglia innervating peripheral targets that were relatively larger or smaller than normal. The relative size of the target--the submandibular gland in these experiments--was manipulated during development by changing the ratio between the amount of target tissue and the number of innervating ganglion cells. Thus, ligating the submandibular salivary duct reduced the size of the… CONTINUE READING
