Lesion-induced synaptogenesis in brain: a study of dynamic changes in neuronal membrane specializations

Journal of Supramolecular Structure
C W Cotman

Abstract

When incoming fibers to a given brain region are damaged and degenerate, the remaining undamaged fibers can, in some cases, form new synapses, and restore physiologically functional circuitry. Synaptic membrane events underlie this reconstruction: the connection between membranes is broken and reformed.
