Cultured explants obtained from the dentate gyrus of rat embryos (embryonic day 19-20) were used to investigate synapse formation and morphological differentiation of neuron types in the absence of extrinsic afferents. Synaptogenesis was studied by whole-cell recordings of postsynaptic currents and by ultrastructural analysis. Neurons were visualized using… CONTINUE READING
