The role of activity in remodelling area-specific neocortical circuits during development

Abstract:

How sensory activity contributes to the development of the brain has been a long-standing question in neuroscience (Katz & Shatz, 1996). A recent study by Marques-Smith et al. (2016) showed that a transient translaminar cortical circuit exists in the primary somatosensory barrel field (S1BF). This connection consists of a reciprocal connection between L5b somatostatin Lpar1-EGFP interneurons onto layer 4 spiny stellate neurons. This transient L5b-L4 connection was observed to be ...
