The purpose of the present study was to examine the possible role of reactive microglia in the removal of presynaptic terminals following motor axon injury. Quantitative electron microscopy was used to examine synaptic numbers and total relative synaptic coverage on hypoglossal neuronal perikarya following hypoglossal nerve transection in the rat with or without pharmacological blockade of the axotomy-induced microglial cell proliferation. In a previous study we have shown that the axotomy… CONTINUE READING
