The path and rate of growth of regenerating motor neurons in the cockroach

Denburg, J. L.; Seecof, R. L.; Horridge, George Adrian


Nerve root 5 that supplies the coxal depressor muscles from the metathoracic ganglion in the cockroach was crushed. Regeneration of the motor neurons was studied by cutting the nerve at several distances from the crush point and introducing cobalt chloride into the cut end. The operation was followed by a lag period of about 13 days after which the axons regenerated at a rate of 0.9 mm per day. After regeneration had been completed a pattern of axon distribution was established among the nerve...[Show more]
