    • 2015 August 26, “Age-Related Changes in Pre- and Postsynaptic Partners of the Cholinergic C-Boutons in Wild-Type and SOD1 G93A Lumbar Motoneurons”, in PLOS ONE[1], DOI:10.1371/journal.pone.0135525:
      In P10-P40 animals, the question then arises as to whether the over-abundance of lamina X ChIns in L2 segments we observed and the increased number of C-boutons on SOD1 Mns are part of these compensatory mechanisms or whether this hypercholinergic state is detrimental for Mns and favors pathology onset.
