Gene expression patterns in visual cortex during the critical period: Synaptic stabilization and reversal by visual deprivation
(National Academy of Sciences, 2008-07)
The mapping of eye-specific, geniculocortical inputs to primary visual cortex (V1) is highly sensitive to the balance of correlated activity between the two eyes during a restricted postnatal critical period for ocular ...
STAT1 Regulates the Homeostatic Component of Visual Cortical Plasticity via an AMPA Receptor-Mediated Mechanism
(Society for Neuroscience, 2014-07-30)
Accumulating evidence points to a role for Janus kinase/signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) immune signaling in neuronal function; however, its role in experience-dependent plasticity is unknown. Here ...
Molecular mechanisms of experience-dependent plasticity in visual cortex
(Royal Society, 2008)
A remarkable amount of our current knowledge of mechanisms underlying experience-dependent plasticity during cortical development comes from study of the mammalian visual cortex. Recent advances in high-resolution cellular ...
