Transplantation into the mammalian adult spinal cord

  • B. H. Hallas
Article

Summary

Embryonic cerebral cortical tissue obtained from rat embryos of 15-day gestation was transplanted into the cervical spinal cord of adult rats. The cortical transplants survived, grew, and established connections with the host animal's spinal cord. In other animals, knife lesions were first made in the host's spinal cord, and then embryonic cortical tissue was transplanted into the site of the lesion. The cortical transplants in these animals were observed to become an integral part of the host animal's spinal cord.
