    Sensory experience during locomotion promotes recovery of function in adult visual cortex

    Megumi Kaneko, Michael P Stryker
    Mice that viewed a visual stimulus whilst running showed recovery of the neuronal responses that had been lost due to early visual deprivation, with potential relevance for amblyopia.

    A cortical disinhibitory circuit for enhancing adult plasticity

    Yu Fu et al.
    Building on previous work (Kaneko and Stryker, 2014), we report that the specific population of inhibitory neurons that increases the responses of neurons in the visual cortex during locomotion will also, when activated or blocked artificially, dramatically alter adult cortical plasticity, revealing that the aerobic exercise of locomotion is not necessary.

    Light reintroduction after dark exposure reactivates plasticity in adults via perisynaptic activation of MMP-9

    Sachiko Murase et al.
    Light reintroduction (LRx) after dark exposure reactivates structural and functional plasticity in the adult mouse visual cortex by increasing the activity of MMP-9 at thalamo-cortical synapses.
    1. Neuroscience

    Response to short-term deprivation of the human adult visual cortex measured with 7T BOLD

    Paola Binda et al.
    Two hour deprivation of vision in one eye transiently boosts the representation of the deprived eye (suppressing the non-deprived eye) in adult human V1 and along the ventral pathway.

    Rem2 stabilizes intrinsic excitability and spontaneous firing in visual circuits

    Anna R Moore et al.
    In vivo and ex vivo analysis of the activity-regulated gene Rem2 in the mouse visual system sheds new light on the contribution of intrinsic excitability in circuit plasticity.

    Optimal level activity of matrix metalloproteinases is critical for adult visual plasticity in the healthy and stroke-affected brain

    Justyna Pielecka-Fortuna et al.
    Matrix metalloproteinases play a crucial role in adult visual plasticity in the brains of healthy and stroke-affected mice and their activity has to be within a narrow window for experience-induced plasticity to occur.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sensory experience modifies feature map relationships in visual cortex

    Shaun L Cloherty et al.
    A new form of brain plasticity extends the known limits for how much early sensory input can alter the brain.

    Episode 13: July 2014

    In this episode we hear about using photographs to diagnose rare genetic disorders, an unexpected benefit of exercise, hybridizing fish species, Rett syndrome, and using gene drives to eradicate disease.
