Development of structural and functional connectivity in the thalamocortical somatosensory pathway in the wallaby
Neuronal activity is implicated as a driving force in the development of sensory systems. In order for it to play a developmental role, however, the pathways involved must be capable of transmitting this activity. The relationship between afferent arrival, synapse formation and the onset of chemical neurotransmission has been examined using the advantageous model of a marsupial mammal, the wallaby (Macropus eugenii), to determine at what stage activity has the capacity to influence cortical...[Show more]
