In order to evaluate the role of cholinergic cortical mechanisms in the shaping of visual cortical plasticity in more detail the present paper summarizes recent studies on the laminar distribution of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, choline acetyltransferase, and sodium-dependent high-affinity choline uptake sites during postnatal ontogenesis of the visual cortex of monocularly derived rats using autoradiographic techniques as well as quantitative biochemical methods after separating the… CONTINUE READING
