We examined postnatal changes in rat masseter motoneuron morphology and the density of synaptic inputs to masseter motoneurons using retrograde labeling combined with synaptophysin immunohistochemistry. The cross-sectional area and perimeter of masseter motoneurons increased through P21 whereas synaptic input density increased throughout the time frame… CONTINUE READING
