Synapse formation on quail trochlear neurons transplanted in duck embryos before naturally occurring motor neuron death.

Abstract

About half of the trochlear motor neurons in duck and quail embryos die during normal development. In a previous study the role of target muscle in controlling the number of surviving motor neurons was investigated by reducing the number of neurons innervating the muscle. This was accomplished by removing the midbrain of the duck embryo and grafting in its… (More)
