The effect of short periods of monocular deprivation on excitatory transmission in the striate cortex of kittens: a current source density analysis


The goal of this study was to assess changes in synaptic activity in the visual cortex of kittens following brief periods of monocular deprivation. Field potentials evoked by electrical stimulation of both optic nerves were registered in vertical penetrations through areas 17 and 18 of 4–5 week-old kittens which had been monocularly deprived for 2–7 days… (More)
