Laminar differences in plasticity in area 17 following retinal lesions in kittens or adult cats

Waleszcyk, W J; Wang, Cong; Young, J M; Burke, W; Calford, Mike B; Dreher, Bogdan


Circumscribed retinal lesions in adult cats result in a reorganization of circuitry in area 17 such that neurons in the lesion projection zone (LPZ) can now be activated, not from their original receptive fields (RFs) but from regions of normal retina adjacent to the lesion ('ectopic' RFs). We have studied this phenomenon further by making circumscribed monocular retinal lesions in 8-week-old kittens and recording responses to visual stimuli of neurons in the LPZ of area 17 when these cats...[Show more]
