  • Transection and transplantation with and without H89 are as described in Fig. 6. HX, Overhemisection; TP, transplant. Rating scale: 0 = no axon growth; + = scattered fibers in transplant near host–transplant border; ++ = sparse fibers throughout transplant; +++ = dense fibers throughout transplant.
