Abstract

Horseradish peroxidase was used to describe the positions and approximate numbers of neurones with axons that descend to the lumbar spinal cord in normal axolotls and axolotls whose spinal cord had been transected 3-23 months previously. Three to 4 months after the transection approximately 10% of the axons had grown across the cut and returned to the lumbar spinal cord whereas 23 months after the transection the number and distribution of these cells were approaching those of the controls.
