Schematic drawing of a possible explanation of paradoxical differences between labeled neurons and numbers of myelinated axons. Schematic drawing of a possible explanation of paradoxical differences between labeled neurons and numbers of myelinated axons in the MCN stump after its end-to-side neurorrhaphy and CNTF treatment when compared with vehiculum/Cerebrolysin application. CNTF-treated animals have shown approximately double the number of UN motor neurons that sent off lateral sprouts into (yellow fluorescence) or directly innervated (green fluorescence) the MCN stump and simultaneously reduced the numbers of sensory and motor myelinated axon branches.
