Modification of Peak Plasticity Induced by Brief Dark Exposure

Figure 4

Comparison of the MD effect between MD-only and dark exposure followed by MD conditions. Whereas comparison of the effect of MD on neurofilament labeling across conditions indicated that the loss in the dLGN was similar with or without darkness (a), the effect on soma size was significantly larger in the group of animals that received dark exposure prior to MD (b). Asterisks indicate statistical significance at .
