These studies, however, differed in the location of their limb lesions and revealed different thalamic and brainstem contributions to plasticity. One study investigated the distribution of thalamic and cortical connections in macaque monkeys with long-standing, accidental trauma to their peripheral forelimb. 70 A parallel study used macaque monkeys that had long-term denervation of an upper limb caused by severing the sensory nerve root as it entered the spinal cord. This manipulation caused the primary sensory neurons to degenerate, causing degeneration of axons in the dorsal columns and producing transneuronal degeneration of topographically appropriate sectors of the brainstem and thalamic nuclei.

48 This observation suggests that synaptic abnormalities are fully developed by 6 months of age and that there is no progressive deterioration with age. The implication is that there is a critical period for the developing auditory system, during which time a lack of organized neural activity causes synaptic remodeling in the form of hypertrophy and eventual loss of synaptic vesicles in the cochlear nucleus. We need to know if these changes interfere with synaptic transmission and whether they are permanent.

As diagrammed by the rectangles, the ocular dominance columns representing left and right eyes alternate with one another. Since both eyes are open in this case, the ocular dominance columns are equal in size. Right Panel: Schematic representation of the visual pathway in the case of a monkey raised under conditions of monocular deprivation. The “X” over the right eye represents forced eye closure during development. As a result of monocular deprivation, the ocular dominance columns from the closed eye fail to form properly, and they are abnormally thin.
