Postnatal neuron addition, if it occurred, would have profound implications both for the conceptualization of developmental processes and for efforts directed at replacing neurons that were lost to injury or disease. Although dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) offer the advantages of clear boundaries and functional homogeneity, studies comparing neuron number in the DRGs of animals of different ages or sizes have yielded conflicting results. In the present study, neuron number in DRGs L3-L6 was… CONTINUE READING
