Re-Establishment of Terminal Patterns in the Adult Rat Hippocampus by Grafted Monoaminergic Neurons
The limbic system, and not least the hippocampus, may belong to those parts of the CNS having a high potential for functional and morphological plastic changes. In the series of experiments reported below we have studied the ability of transplanted monoaminergic — noradrenergic, dopaminergic or serotoninergic — neurons to reinnervate the partially denervated hippocampus.
