Changes in latencies of the visual evoked response (VER) during early post-natal development were examined in protein-deprived (PD) rats. The evoked response to light-flash stimulation was recorded in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) and on the surface of the visual cortex. In control rats, latencies of the cortical VER decreased rapidly up to 20 days and slowly thereafter. In PD rats, the latencies of the cortical VER were increased by 10-15 ms at 17 days; the developmental… CONTINUE READING
