Neurogenesis and sensitive periods in avian song learning.

Abstract

In many species of birds the propensity to learn songs from conspecifics is greatest during one or more distinct periods in life. These 'sensitive' learning periods, together with our detailed knowledge of the neural circuitry controlling avian song, have facilitated the discovery of radical neuroanatomical changes that accompany vocal development. One of… (More)
