Changes in input strength and number are driven by distinct mechanisms at the retinogeniculate synap

Authors: David J. Lin, Erin Kang, Chinfei Chen¬†Abstract:¬†Recent studies have demonstrated that vision influences the functional remodeling of the mouse retinogeniculate synapse, the connection between retinal ganglion cells and thalamic relay neurons in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). Initially, each relay neuron receives a large number of weak retinal inputs. Over a 2- to …
