Building circuits to process visual information
Visual experience is essential to establish functional connectivity throughout the visual system, however the mechanisms by which activity influences neuronal development and circuit connectivity are not clear. Using Xenopus tadpoles we have identified the cellular and molecular effects of visual experience on topographic map formation, on tectal cell development and on development of the visual circuit. Dr. Cline will present results of in vivo imaging experiments demonstrating novel cellular mechanisms by which experience controls visual circuit plasticity and function.
