Rats of various postnatal ages were utilized to investigate developmental changes in the short-term distribution of [3H]mannitol, [3H]inulin and [51Cr]-tagged erythrocytes in both the cerebellum (CER) and cerebral cortex (CC). As the CNS undergoes maturation the most precipitous decrease in the 1-h radiomannitol (and inulin) space in the CER takes place during the second postnatal week whereas the greatest reduction in the spaces for both radioisotopes in the CC occurs during the earlier period… CONTINUE READING
