Ontogeny and Patterning

Dynamics between neuronal birth, addition, and survival as the song circuit grows to breeding state Gambel’s white-crowned sparrow is capable of adding more than 68,000 neurons to HVC within four days of transition to breeding conditions. Along with this addition in new neurons, these… Continue Reading “Ontogeny and Patterning”

Circuit Plasticity

Natural neuronal death prompts reactive adult neurogenesis Neuronal birth and death are tightly coordinated to establish and maintain properly functioning neural circuits. Disruption of the equilibrium between neuronal birth and death following brain injury or insult often induces reactive neurogenesis. We used a model… Continue Reading “Circuit Plasticity”
