A quantitative study of visual cortex synapses during the postnatal development of dark-reared rats.

Abstract

The method of Aghajanian and Bloom (1967) was applied to the visual cortex of normal and neonatally visually deprived rats. The rats were kept with their mothers in total darkness since birth, in a ventilated and temperature-controlled animal quarter.
