  • Subplate neurons are a transient population of neurons in the brain forming one of the first functional cortical circuits. Past experiments have demonstrated their importance in growth of thalamocortical afferents into the cortical plate and later segregation of thalamocortical afferents. Recently, subplate neurons have been shown to be required for the functional maturation of both thalamocortical connections and mature visual responses in visual cortex. These findings suggest that… CONTINUE READING
