The most dramatic example of experience-dependent cortical plasticity is the shift in ocular dominance that occurs in visual cortex as a consequence of monocular deprivation during early postnatal life. Many of the basic properties of this type of synaptic plasticity have been described in detail. The important challenge that remains is to understand the molecular basis for these properties. By combining theoretical analysis with experiments in vivo and in vitro, some of the elementary… CONTINUE READING
