Sensory experience drives plasticity of the body map in developing and adult somatosensory cortex, but the synaptic mechanisms underlying such plasticity are not well understood. Recently, several mechanisms that are likely to contribute to map plasticity have been directly observed in response to altered experience in vivo. These mechanisms include long-term potentiation and long-term depression at specific excitatory synapses, competition between lemniscal (barrel) and non-lemniscal (septal… CONTINUE READING
