We use the mouse visual system to understand the process of formation and refinement of synaptic circuits. Recent studies from our lab, using optogenetic and pharmacogenetic tools, show that primary sensory pathways develop through the concurrent and interdependent remodeling of subcortical and cortical circuits in response to sensory experience. I will describe results from our current ongoing studies that provide insight onto how this developmental process lead to the mature organization of the retinogeniculate circuitry in thalamus.
