Neocortical transplants in the rat brain: an ultrastructural study

Short Communications


Electron microscopic analysis of neocortical transplants in the cerebellum of the host animals showed that the nerve cells, glial cells, and neuropil of the transplants were normal. These transplants showed anatomical integration with the host brain through various regions of interface. Neuropil interfaces were found to have a high density of synaptic profiles, and medullary interfaces had a very small number of synaptic profiles.
