Plasticity of Retinal Inputs in the Mouse Visual Thalamus

The visual thalamus has classically been viewed as a simple relay station for labeled lines of information transmitted from the retina to cortex. Recent studies from many laboratories in the mouse have raised questions regarding whether thalamic circuits may play a larger role in information processing and plasticity than previously recognized. I will tell you about our recent studies exploring these possibilities in the developing and mature brain.
