In the auditory cortex (AC), GABAergic neurons constitute approximately 15-25% of all neurons. GABAergic cells are present in all sensory modalities and essential for modulating sensory receptive fields. Parvalbumin (PV) positive cells represent the largest sub-group of the GABAergic population in auditory neocortex. We investigated the projection pattern(More)
Axons in the adult CNS fail to regenerate after injury, and therefore recovery from spinal cord injury (SCI) is limited. Although full recovery is rare, a modest degree of spontaneous recovery is observed consistently in a broad range of clinical and nonclinical situations. To define the mechanisms mediating spontaneous recovery of function after incomplete(More)
Neurons have a limited capacity to regenerate in the adult central nervous system (CNS). The inability of damaged axons to re-establish original circuits results in permanent functional impairment after spinal cord injury (SCI). Despite abortive regeneration of axotomized CNS neurons, limited spontaneous recovery of motor function emerges after partial SCI(More)
