Postnatal development of the mammalian geniculostriate visual pathway is partly guided by visually driven activity. Disruption of normal visual input during certain critical periods can alter the structure of neurons, as well as their connections and functional properties. Within the layers of the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN), a brief early(More)
Monocular deprivation during early development causes rearrangement of neural connections within the visual cortex that produces a shift in ocular dominance favoring the non-deprived eye. This alteration is manifested anatomically within deprived layers of the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) where neurons have smaller somata and reduced geniculocortical(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor (HPT-JT) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant multiple tumor syndrome characterized by hyperparathyroidism due to single or multiple-gland parathyroid tumor(s). Since it was first described in 1990, the genetics underlying the syndrome have been elucidated and typical clinical presentations are becoming clarified as(More)
