Previous studies in our laboratory [3,17] have demonstrated that serotonin (5-HT) appears to have a trophic-like effect in enhancing synapse formation and maintenance in both the developing and the adult central nervous system. In the present study, we focused on age-related changes in the density of the axosomatic and axodendritic synapses and the number of 5-HT-positive fibers in the chicken spinal cord, with special reference to differences between the ventral (laminae VII and IX) and the… CONTINUE READING
