Adult male canaries modify their song every year. Most of these changes occur during late summer and early fall, after the end of the breeding season, and in late winter, immediately before the onset of the next breeding season. The high vocal center (HVC) is an important nucleus in the brain pathway that controls this learned behavior. New neurons continue to be added to the HVC of adult male canaries, where they replace older neurons that have died. The present report describes the monthly… CONTINUE READING
