activity-dependent plasticity in the adult

Also, check out Mezzernich (sp??), concurrent or coordinated
stimulation of different digits, etc.  I know, lit search goes poorly
with mis-spelled names.  Someone more sure of the spelling help me out?
 If no other recourse, search under Paula Tallal, who (I believe) has
sometimes co-authored with him, and get correct spelling and initials
that way.

Also--just thought of it-- extensive brain reorganization in one of Ed
Taub's deafferented monkeys.  A LONG delayed report (in Science?  5-6
years ago?) with multiple authors, but I think Ed was one; he's into
other things now, but lit search on his name starting 10 years ago
should locate it.
