  • visual cortex
  • With the discovery of the plasticity of ocular dominance domains in cat visual cortex about 1960, Torsten Wiesel and David Hubel were able to provide a nerve cell basis for the critical period ( Wiesel and Hubel, 1963 ). (blogspot.com)
  • impairments
  • An association between age-related memory impairments and changes in functional plasticity in the aging brain has been under intense study within the last decade. (frontiersin.org)
  • amplitude
  • The rate-based "covariance protocol" induced significant and large amplitude changes in receptive field properties, in both kitten and adult V1 cortex. (frontiersin.org)
  • mechanism
  • However, the mechanism by which neuropsin and L1 influence synaptic plasticity is not known. (biologists.org)
  • Owing to the importance of Wnt signaling in a wide range of biological fields, a better understanding of the precise mechanism of Wnt signaling might provide fundamental insights regarding its role in disease development and may provide novel targets for therapeutic applications. (hindawi.com)
  • experiments
  • Concomitant neurophysiological experiments showed a close relationship between sleep spindles and other sleep related EEG rhythms as well as a relationship between sleep spindles and synaptic plasticity. (hindawi.com)
  • In the 1940s, Roger Sperry observed in an elegant series of experiments with frogs ( Sperry, 1945 ), and later repeated in fish ( Sperry, 1948 ), that after he surgically removed an eye and implanted it reversed or upside down on the other side, vision was restored, but the original map of the visual field appeared preserved despite the change in the eye's orientation.

  • responses
  • Although GABA and glycine elicit similar postsynaptic ionotropic responses, our results raise the possibility that GABAergic transmission in neonates may play a developmental role distinct from that of glycine. (jneurosci.org)
