Researchers discover how inhibitory neurons behave during critical periods of learning

We’ve all heard the saying «you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.»For years, neuroscientists have struggled to understand how the microcircuitry of the brain makes learning easier for the young, and more difficult for the old. New findings published in the journal Nature by Carnegie Mellon, the UCLA and the UC-Irvine show how one component of the brain’s circuitry — inhibitory neurons — behave during critical periods of learning.
