Abstract

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.
