Behavioral recovery from binocular deprivation in the cat.


Visuo-motor behavior and visual acuity were assessed in animals who experienced monocular vision after a prolonged period of binocular deprivation. In animals who experienced initial binocular suture, there was limited recovery and no difference between the initially opened and late opened eye. In animals who experienced initial dark-rearing, the initially opened eye recovered to normal levels and the late opened eye showed severe amblyopia. These differences in behavioral recovery between dark-rearing and binocular suture are compared with physiological differences between the two rearing conditions.
