    • Rapid Critical Period Induction by Tonic Inhibition in Visual Cortex 

      Iwai, Youichi; Fagiolini, Michela; Obata, Kunihiko; Hensch, Takao (Society for Neuroscience, 2003)
      Mice lacking a synaptic isoform of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD65) do not exhibit ocular dominance plasticity unless an appropriate level of GABAergic transmission is restored by direct infusion of benzodiazepines into ...
    • Remodeling of retrotransposon elements during epigenetic induction of adult visual cortical plasticity by HDAC inhibitors 

      Lennartsson, Andreas; Arner, Erik; Fagiolini, Michela; Saxena, Alka; Andersson, Robin; Takahashi, Hazuki; Noro, Yukihiko; Sng, Judy; Sandelin, Albin; Hensch, Takao K.; Carninci, Piero (BioMed Central, 2015)
      Background: The capacity for plasticity in the adult brain is limited by the anatomical traces laid down during early postnatal life. Removing certain molecular brakes, such as histone deacetylases (HDACs), has proven to ...
