Hi, I just started to study the frequency and pattern of somatic mutation in t
the mouse brain.  I would like to know how many times astrocytes and oligo-
dendrocytes divide in the mouse brain.  More specifically, between the ages of 
3 and 10 months, do they divide at all?  If so, how many times?  In addition, 
in response to an injury, how many times are they able to divide?  I would 
appreciate it if somebody could give me the answer or a reference.  Thank 
you in advance.
