What are the hallmarks of neuronal circuits maturation?

Select ALL that apply.


Neuronal circuit maturation is experience-dependent and happens during the postnatal period.


The number of synaptic targets for a given axon and the number of axons innervating a given cell is reduced.


Upon elimination of non-competitive connections, the strength of remaining connections remains constant.


Synaptic sites relinquished by retracting axons may be occupied by the remaining axons in a competitive manner.
