Abstract

Nerve growth factor (NGF) and the other members of the NGF gene family have been extensively characterized as neurotrophic factors. Recently a modulatory action of these neurotrophic factors on synapse efficacy has emerged. The developing visual system has provided a convenient model to test the role of neurotrophins on neural plasticity in vivo.
