Ocular dominance (od) plasticity in the visual cortex is a classic model system for understanding developmental plasticity, but the visual cortex also shows plasticity in adulthood whether the plasticity mechanisms are similar or different at the two ages is not clear several plasticity mechanisms. Synaptic scaling is a homeostatic form of plasticity that tends to restore neuronal activity to ‘baseline’ levels it does so by changing the postsynaptic response of all of the synapses of a neuron as a function of activity (.

This meeting brought together computational and experimental neuroscientists to discuss how interactions between hebbian plasticity and homeostatic plasticity occur and how they can be detected and interrogated at the systems level. Researchers have found that synaptic plasticity, long implicated as a device for change in the brain, may also be essential for stability. In neuroscience, homeostatic plasticity refers to the capacity of neurons to regulate their own excitability relative to. The best example of homeostatic synaptic plasticity is the synaptic scaling occurring at the glutamatergic synapses received by neocortical pyramidal neurons. Monocular deprivation (md) is a classic paradigm for experience-dependent cortical plasticity one form is known as homeostatic plasticity, in which neurons innervated by the deprived eye show a remarkable capacity to compensate for degraded visual signals in an attempt to stabilize network activity.
