Hippocampal neurons exhibit periodically recurring growth cone-like structures, referred to as "waves," that emerge at the base of neurites and travel distally to the tip. As a wave nears the tip, the neurite undergoes retraction, and when it reaches the tip, the neurite undergoes a burst of growth. At 1 day in culture, during early axon outgrowth, axons undergo an average 7.5-microm retraction immediately preceding wave arrival at the tip followed by 12-microm growth immediately after arrival… CONTINUE READING
