Synaptic characteristics of identified pyramidal and multipolar non-pyramidal neurons in the visual cortex of young and adult rabbits. A quantitative Golgi-electron microscope study.

The visual cortex of 20 day old rats and rabbits has been considered as mature on the basis of the observations that the dendritic arborization and the overall synaptic population have almost reached their adult stage in these animals. In the present study we have investigated the visual cortex of 20 day and 7 month old (adult) rabbits in order to determine… (More)
