A third experiment provided more indirect support for our tentative hypothesis that neurotrophic factors secreted by the transplant, or stimulated in the host brain by the presence of the transplant, were directly involved in promoting recovery from brain damage. 4 However, the results we obtained had direct bearing on the issue of how grafts might mediate behavioral recovery (Stein, Palatucci, Kahn, & Labbe, 1988). Because of the consistent success of the frontal transplants in enhancing recovery from frontal cortex injury, we decided to repeat the experiment but with varying delays between the initial frontal cortex lesions and the implantation of the fetal tissue.

Based on their anatomical and behavioral findings, the authors were led to the conclusion that cholinergic reinnervation growing from the transplant into the host may have been necessary to induce the functional recovery they observed. k findings were followed by a virtual explosion of anatomical and histological reports (see Azmitia & Bjorklund, 1987; Bjorklund & Stenevi, 1985; Gash & Sladek, in press, for comprehensive reviews of this subject), the majority of which demonstrated that fetal tissue can, indeed, form reciprocal neuronal connections with the host brain.
