During ontogenesis changes in the numerical density of synapses are usually assumed to depend essentially on variations in the formation of synapses. Only the final adjustment to adult synapse densities is thought to include the elimination of synapses in some brain regions of certain species. Here, we focus attention on quantitative aspects of synapse elimination throughout development of area 17 of marmoset monkeys (Callithrix jacchus). Mature synapses, various precursor forms, and indicators… CONTINUE READING
