This is, in fact, the oldest and most widely held interpretation of neuronal death, dating back to the classic experiments of Hamburger and Levi-Montalcini (52) on spinal ganglia and motoneurons. They reported that initially the spinal ganglia were all of similar size and the motor column uniform along its length, and that the subsequently larger numbers of spinal ganglion cells and motoneurons at brachial and lumbar levels were due to a retrograde influence from the periphery on the proliferation of neuronal precursors and on neuronal death (52,53).
