Selective restriction of vision in a kitten can also alter the properties of its cortical neurons strikingly. Hirsch and Spinelli (1970) outfitted kittens with special goggles so that one eye saw only vertical slits and the other, only horizontal slits. Experience was given during a daily period, and the kittens spent the rest of the day in the dark. Almost all cortical cells were later found to be monocular, and the preferred orientation of stimuli for arousal of cells corresponded to the orientation to which the eye had been exposed.

Brown (1971) reported, however, that differences in brain enzymes disappeared within a few days after she removed rats from an enriched condition (where they had spent 80 days) and returned them to the colony condition. She therefore concluded that the changes in brain enzymes could not be related to memory mechanisms, since the chemical changes disappeared rapidly while memory for the differential experience could be shown to persist. We have recently obtained quite different results from Brown in more extensive experiments (Bennett, Rosenzweig, and Diamond, 1974).
