A new critical period for sensory map plasticity

A new critical period for sensory map plasticity

Neuron 31(2): 171-173

The development of neural circuits is influenced by sensory experience during restricted critical periods early in life. A novel critical period is demonstrated for plasticity of the whisker map in layer 2/3 of rat primary somatosensory cortex. Sensory experience during this period guides initial formation of whisker receptive fields.
