To adapt to seasonal variations in the environment, most mammalian species exhibit seasonal cycles in their physiology and behavior. Seasonal plasticity in the structure and function of the central nervous system contributes to the adaptation of this physiology in seasonal mammals. As part of these plasticity mechanisms, seasonal variations in proliferation rate and neuron production have been extensively studied in songbirds. In this report, we investigated whether this type of brain… CONTINUE READING
