Method See comments section
Comments P.628 top paragraph:"One method widely used is to measure the accumulation of components carried to ligations made in the nerve or to nerve terminals (Lubinska, 1964 Barondes, 1969 Grafstein, 1969). Karlsson & Sjostrand (primary source) found four peaks of accumulation of labelled components in the lateral geniculate after injecting the eye with [3H]leucine with two fast rates reported at 150 and 40mm/day."
