  • Male zebra finches normally learn much of their song during the second month after hatching. This is a period of rapid change throughout the brain. We studied anatomical consequences of manipulating exposure to song. We investigated neurons of lateral MAN (1MAN), a nucleus implicated in song learning (Bottjer et al., 1984), in male and female zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) at 55 days posthatch. Birds were raised either under normal colony conditions (social) or in colonies in which adult… CONTINUE READING
