The long-term morphological consequences on laminar thickness and neuron survival were assessed in cerebral cortical area PMLS following excision of visual cortical areas 17, 18, and 19 from adult and adolescent cats and from neonatal kittens. Following excisions from kittens, layers III, V, and VI in area PMLS were reduced in thickness and there was a significant loss of neurons from layers III and VI. Following excisions from adolescent cats, layers V and VI were thinner than normal, whereas… CONTINUE READING
