Bilateral innervation of a single hindlimb bud was induced by amputating the other limb bud and disrupting the barriers between the two sides. Though the routes of the crossed nerves were necessarily abnormal, the motor projections that developed subsequently were normal as determined by horseradish peroxidase tracing. The limb therefore appears to be innervated selectively, each region being invaded and/or synapsed with only by motoneurones at particular locations. The numbers of motoneurones… CONTINUE READING
