Following circumscribed retinal damage, extensive reorganization of topographically organized visual cortical areas has been demonstrated in several species of mammals (including humans). Although reorganization is often studied over extended time scales, neural response properties change within seconds of retinal deafferentation. Understanding the mechanisms underlying these short-term effects is essential for developing a complete picture of representational plasticity. One approach to the… CONTINUE READING
