The visualization of neuronal populations activated by sensory stimulation has been approached using a number of different methodologies. Recent developments in our understanding of transcription factors have provided a new window for observing neural activity. We have found that the transcription factor Zif268 is expressed throughout the visual cortex of the monkey at high basal levels and that monocular visual deprivation produces dramatic changes in its levels revealing ocular dominance… CONTINUE READING
