Dendritic maturation of pyramidal neurons in layers III and V of the rat visual cortex was quantified in rapid Golgi-stained tissue from socially housed hooded rats at ages 15, 30, and 60 days. A complex pattern of changes emerged. Dendritic branching analyses revealed that in layer III both bifurcating and terminal basilar branches increased in length over the sampled days. Likewise, total dendritic length increased in the layer III basilar dendritic tree between 15 and 30 days of age and… CONTINUE READING
