Activation of TrkB in PV interneurons orchestrates cortical plasticity.
Activation of optically activatable TrkB neurotrophic receptor (optoTrkB) elevates ocular dominance plasticity and oscillatory synchrony in the visual cortex through electrophysiological and gene-expressional changes in Parvalbumin (PV) interneurons.
