Cortical Spontaneous Activity in Mice

This image was taken in relation to research showing that in mice, the touch and sight circuits are not independent in the embryo, but are intermingled. At birth these circuits separate and responses to sensory stimuli become independent.


The image shows cortical spontaneous activity at birth in a control mouse (left) and a mouse where retinal waves were blocked by carbenoxolone injection into the eye (right).
