  • In the course of developmental sensitive periods, an animal receives input from the environment which shapes its behaviour and neuronal connectivity. While normally restricted to early development, it has been shown frequently that an extension of the sensitive period to later ages is possible by sensory deprivation or inadequate stimulation. This raises the question whether sensitive periods can be shifted to any age, or whether a time window exists within which sensitive period shifts are… CONTINUE READING
