nervous system
• brain mass is reduced
• total neocortical area is reduced
• reduction in the total numbers of thalamocortical axons innervating the somatosensory cortex
• however, segregation of barrels is unaffected
• area of posteromedial barrel subfield is reduced
• combined area of all thalamocortical axon patches in the barrel cortex is reduced indicating a reduction in thalamocortical innervation of barrel cortex
• P8-10 mice show a reduction in connectivity of individual thalamocortical axons onto L4 neurons despite normal NMDA receptor function after the critical period
• reduction in neurofilament medium polypeptide-positive axons in barrel cortex in P6-7 mice
• decrease in the number of thalamocortical axons
• thalamocortical synapses transiently show altered NMDA receptor function
• however, after the critical period thalamocortical synapses function normally
• reduction in peak excitatory postsynaptic current (EPSC) amplitude
• however, no differences are seen in minimal stimulation EPSC amplitude
• NMDA excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) show faster decay kinetics during the critical period for thalamocortical plasticity
• treatment with ifenprodil, a GluN2B-specific antagonist, has no effect on NMDA EPSCs
