The effects of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), glutamate, and glycine on the developmental axons of the neonatal rat spinal cord were investigated. Isolated dorsal column preparations from postnatal day (PN) 0 to 14 Long-Evans hooded rats (n = 119) were used in vitro. Compound action potentials (CAPs) were recorded from the cuneate and gracile fasciculi with a glass micropipette electrode.
