The main objective of this study was to examine the role of neural activity in the development of cell layers in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). We studied this relationship in postnatal tree shrews either by completely blocking retinal ganglion cell activity with TTX or by selectively blocking activity to the developing ON-center LGN layers (1 and 2) with 2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid (APB), using unilateral and bilateral eye injections. All manipulations were carried out from… CONTINUE READING
