The effects of pre-hatch light exposure on synaptic development in the intermediate and medial part of the hyperstriatum ventrale (IMHV) of the chick brain were investigated. Quantitative electron microscopical techniques were used to determine the size and numerical density of synapses and it was seen that in light hatched chicks there was a significant increase in the density of synapses in the left IMHV but that the size of synapses in these birds was decreased. These results provide a link… CONTINUE READING
