The search continues for factors whose regulation during development accounts for the end of the critical period for experience-dependent cortical plasticity. Recent studies suggest that NMDA receptors and neurotrophins may be involved either individually or in concert. NMDA receptor subunits are developmentally regulated in a way that affects the kinetic properties of the NMDA receptor. The expression of mRNAs for neurotrophins and their receptors is regulated by developmental factors and by… CONTINUE READING
