Selective reinnervation in skin rotation grafts in Rana pipiens.

Skin rotation grafts were performed in Rana pipiens tadpoles producing misdirected reflexes in adult frogs. The pattern of innervation fields of dorsal and ventral rami of segmental nerves 3, 4, 5 and 6 were investigated by recording from the severed rami with suction electrodes. Innervation patterns of regenerated fields were influenced by graft borders… CONTINUE READING
