Kirkwood Lab Publishes Visual Plasticity Study in eLife

MBI Researcher Alfredo Kirkwood’s laboratory recently published as paper in eLife. The study shows that pairing visual and adrenergic stimulation for only 1 hour enhances visual cortical responses for days, and it can reverse cortical deficits produced by months of visual deprivation.
