Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Dissociated and non-dissociated cerebral cortex of fetal rat was successfully cultured in a serum-free, chemically defined medium for at least 18 days without any preincubation in serum-supplemented medium. Neurite outgrowth, synapse formation and spontaneous bioelectric activity, in its qualitative and quantitative aspects, were essentially the same as was observed in medium containing 20% heat-inactivated horse serum.
