Synapse and Acetylcholine Receptor Synthesis by Neurons Dissociated From Retina
In this report on Nirenberg's retina studies, the formation of synapses by cultured neurons that were dissociated from
chick embryo retina is correlated with the synthesis of neuroreceptors found in earlier studies. Descriptions of the developmental
sequence of events leading to synaptogenesis in vitro, along with the type and number of synapses, correspond well with processes
in the intact retina.
