Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) messenger RNA (mRNA) expression in the rat visual cortex of young and postnatal day 90 (P90) animals is developmentally regulated and influenced by visual… (More)
Synaptic plasticity has been implicated in the mechanisms contributing to the shaping of the cortical circuits responsible for the transmission of the visual input in the rat primary visual cortex.… (More)
In this study we report the expression of TrkA receptor within the rat visual cortex during postnatal development and in adulthood, using a specific monoclonal antibody which recognizes the… (More)
The issue we want to address in the present paper is to establish whether electrical stimulation of latero medial (LM) area, a secondary visual area in the rat, is able to induce Long Term… (More)
Long term forms of synaptic plasticity and in particular LTD/LTP are both present in the mammalian visual cortex. However, while LTP is not inducible in adulthood LTD can be elicited in the mature… (More)
To determine the relationship between synaptic structural changes and cortical function, we recently published a study where we imaged dendritic spines using two-photon in vivo microscopy while… (More)
