Molecular and Cellular Approaches to Neural Development

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers recent evidence suggesting that neurotrophins may function in the activity-dependent remodeling of connections during the development of the mammalian visual cortex. It begins by considering evidence of a requirement for a retrograde signal from the postsynaptic to the presynaptic neuron. It then reviews evidence that neurotrophins may be good candidates for this signal.

Keywords:   visual cortex development, neurtrophins, visual system, ocular dominant columns
