Abstract

A review of the most common causes of severe mental retardation (Moser, 1995) indicates that dendritic abnormalities have been demonstrated in most of the common forms. Furthermore, in some instances the underlying biological mechanisms have been clarified. The surprisingly belated application of an old technique, the Golgi stain, combined with the use of novel techniquesof molecular biology and neuroscience, promise to add exciting new insights about the pathogenesis of severe mental retardation. Furthermore, as discussed by other articles in this volume, improvements in cognitive function associated with environmental enrichment may also be mediated, at least in part, by neuronal plasticity associated with dendritic synaptic mechanisms. Study of dendritic abnormalities thus has broad relevance to the entire field of mental retardation. In this article I cite examples of dendritic abnormalities that have been demonstrated in disorders associated with severe mental retardation.
