Topographical maps form the basis of the organization in many projections within the central nervous system, but in the neuromuscular system such detailed spatial organization has generally been assumed to be absent and indeed unnecessary for normal function (see, for example, ref. 1). However, there is some physiological evidence for a degree of spatial organization within the discrete, longitudinal motor columns which supply individual muscles. We have used horseradish peroxidase as a… CONTINUE READING
