The cortical stab injury has been widely used for biochemical analysis of molecular changes following CNS injury. However, the cellular responses to this injury have not been accurately quantified. In order to provide a baseline for biochemical studies and future experiments on the manipulation of the CNS injury response we have undertaken a quantitative analysis of this injury. The proliferative and reactive responses of oligodendrocyte precursor cells, astrocytes and microglia were measured… CONTINUE READING
