Regressive modifications of climbing fibres following Purkinje cell degeneration in the cerebellar cortex of the adult rat.

Abstract

The role of postsynaptic neurons in the maintenance of adult terminal axon arbours was investigated in the rat olivocerebellar system. The degeneration of Purkinje cells, the main target of olivary axons in the cerebellar cortex, was obtained by intraparenchymal application of kainate. The structural features of target-deprived climbing fibres, visualized… (More)
