Vimentin immunoreactive glial cells in the fish optic nerve: implications for regeneration.


The poor regenerative ability of neurons of the central nervous system in mammals, as compared with their counterpart in fish or amphibians, is thought to stem from differences in their immediate nonneuronal environment and its response to axonal injury. We describe one aspect of the environmental response to axonal injury in a spontaneously regenerating… (More)
