They found the visual cortex forms before the critical period for visual development. The column cells are also seen in new born monkeys. Therefore the formation ofthe visual cortex must be genetically determined not ue to the environmental stimuli. There are postnatal periods when the NS needs specific experiences to develop properiy. These are critical windows or sensitive periods. What happens during the critical window? > Visual stimulation is needed for the refinement of columns and the full development of the visual cortex. > Each time a neurone fires into a target cell inthe visual cortex, the synapses of the other neurones sharing the target cell are weakened and release less NT If this competition ‘continues then only the synapses on axons receiving light stimulation wil fre until stimulations from the light deprived eye willbe lost. More neurones are produced than are required in the nervous system. In the retina 80% of the original neurones are pruned and die. ‘There isa critical window for the development of the mature visual cortex. ‘+ The eyes of new-born kittens and monkeys were sutured, The age at which the animals were deprived of vision and the length of time the eye remained closed was varied + One eye of akitten was sutured before its eyes opened.

There was no effect ‘on the vision ofthe sutured eye ‘+ closing the eye ofa kitten for a short period during the critical period for visual evelopment has as much effect as closing the eye from birth. ‘+ Similar results were achieved when monkeys were used.

This is a huge area of the brain ‘A lack of serotonin leads to depression - feelings of sadness, anxiety, hopelessness, a loss of interest in pleasurable activities, decreased energy levels, insomnia, thoughts of death. ‘The cause is multifactorial - several genes and environmental factors are involved eg stress. ‘The S-HTT gene codes for a transporter protein that controls serotonin reuptake into the presynaptic neurones. Those with the short version of S-HTT are susceptible to depression if an environment trigger occurs. Other NTs may be involved and the lack of serotonin may be the cause OR the result of depression. In depressed people there are fewer nerve impulses transmitted around the brain. The pathways involved in in serotonin synthesis are often present in low ‘concentrations but the serotonin binding sites are more numerous than normal Treating Depression Selective Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRis) inhibit the uptake of serotonin. This leaves ‘more serotonin n the synaptic cleft. Therefore, more impulses travel along the post synaptic axon. This results in the relief of the symptoms ‘Tricylic antidepressants (TCAs) increase the levels of serotonin and noradrenalin inthe brain, Monoamincoxidase inhibitors inhibit the enzymes that break down serotonin, Developing new treatments for Parkinson's - Gene Therapy Results from the Human Genome Project help to develop gene therapies Scientists are investigating inserting healthy genes into the affected cells ‘The two main approaches are: adding genes to prevent cells from dying: adding genes to ‘enhance dopamineproduction ‘The problems are that safety is of prime concern, so gene therapy like this is stil ears away Habituation Less calcium (ions) enter into neurone /fewer calcium channels open Fewer neurotransmitter vesicles (move to/fuse with} (presynaptic/neurone 1) membrane/less neurotransmitter released (into synaptic cleft) Less neurotransmitter diffuses (across the synaptic cleft) Less neurotransmitter binds to {receptor/sodium channel} on (postsynaptic/neurone 2) membrane Fewer sodium (ion) channels open/less sodium (ions) enter Less membrane depolarisation/{fewer/no} action potentials initiated {in neurone 2) At wnonswen spon smut \arer cones be peonte Lr reotninter . 3 Ther es deptariaton 1 ier sel mits ested : ‘oe acon petit ‘ial ome soho Samed Oe eter {Ho ge anes, rouore Fontes eg water et wu Fare 8.58 Sinling te pho ae te lf gt be wth, Animal testing Clinical trials stage 1 involves animals.
