Activity-dependent plasticity is thought to underlie both formation of appropriate synaptic connections during development and reorganization of adult cortical topography. We have recently cloned many candidate plasticity-related genes (CPGs) induced by glutamate-receptor activation in the hippocampus. Screening the CPG pool for genes that may contribute to(More)
Chest wall deformity is one of the potential complications of rib cartilage harvesting for auricular reconstruction. An eight year old boy underwent two stage microtia reconstruction using the 6th-9th costal cartilage for the 3-D cartilage framework. One year later an anterior chest wall deformity was noticed with bulging of the 5th rib, asymmetry of the(More)
