Abstract

Previous work reported increases in the number of myelinated axons in the splenium of the rat corpus callosum between 25 and 60 days of age. In the present study, we quantified the area occupied by myelinated axons using a light microscopic point counting technique at 60, 120 and 180 days. Myelinated axons increased across these ages (p=0.001). Thus, myelination of the rat corpus callosum persists well into adulthood.
