Postnatal Neurogenesis in the Guinea-pig

JOSEPH ALTMAN & GOPAL D. DAS

Psychophysiological Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts

The young of rats and mice are immature at birth. After birth, their brains grow in size and there is also a marked proliferation of cells which become differentiated into neurones with short axons (micro-neurones). The proliferation of similar cells has now been demonstrated in the hippocampus of postnatal guinea-pigs even though these rodents are born with nearly full-size brains.
