  1. 1.

    One hour of electric stimulation of the preganglionic oculomotor nerve results in an enhanced speed of fast axonal transport of the newly synthetized proteins, as revealed by light and electron microscope auto-radiography of labelled and transported proteins within the synaptic endings (calices) of the stimulated axons present in the ciliary ganglion of the chick.

  2. 2.

    In the ciliary ganglion cells the synthesis of proteins is also markedly activated by electric stimulation of the preganglionic fibres.
