This chapter reviews adult plasticity as a consequence of peripheral lesions, experience, and aging. It also describes the role of the neuromodulator acetylcholine in the plasticity process. It illustrates that the environment, and specifically the behavioral importance and interactions with the environment, have a strong effect on the functional organization of a cortical field. This chapter shows that different neuromodulators have a strong influence on adult auditory cortical plasticity. It suggests that acetylcholine play a key role in cortical plasticity.

Keywords:   adult plasticity, peripheral lesions, experience, aging, acetylcholine, neuromodulators, auditory cortical plasticity
