Withinmodality Plasticity

This section will focus on early changes in visual experience, such as strabismus, and how they affect the development of visual functions and, ultimately, their organization in the adult brain. We review evidence that suggests that, because different visual functions have different developmental timetables, the period of time during which optimal plasticity is observed is specific to each visual function. The relationship between developmental events and plastic changes is first considered by reviewing fast-developing visual functions such as orientation selectivity or stereopsis. Functions with a more protracted period of development are then considered. A major consequence of these differences in developmental time course is that the timing and nature of the experience that leads to plastic changes differ for different visual functions.
