Postsynaptic currents in deep cerebellar nuclei.
Postsynaptic currents were studied by whole cell recordings in visually identified large neurons of the deep cerebellar nuclei (DCN) in slices of 4- to 11-day-old mice. Spontaneous postsynapticExpand

Correlation between multiple climbing fibre regression and parallel fibre response development in the postnatal mouse cerebellum
At the neuromuscular junction elimination of supernumerary synaptic connections during development is owing to a competitive process between single neuronal populations, whereas in the centralExpand

Long-Term Synaptic Changes Induced in the Cerebellar Cortex by Fear Conditioning
To better understand learning mechanisms, one needs to study synaptic plasticity induced by behavioral training. Recently, it has been demonstrated that the cerebellum is involved in theExpand

Learning-related long-term potentiation of inhibitory synapses in the cerebellar cortex
Despite the widespread distribution of inhibitory synapses throughout the central nervous system, plasticity of inhibitory synapses related to associative learning has never been reported. In theExpand

Sodium imaging of climbing fiber innervation fields in developing mouse Purkinje cells.
Maturation of specific neuronal connections in the mature nervous system includes elimination of redundant synapses formed earlier during development. In the cerebellum of adult animals, eachExpand

The Cerebellum: Synaptic Changes and Fear Conditioning
In addition to coordinating movement, the cerebellum participates in motor learning, emotional behavior, and fear memory. Fear learning is reflected in a change of autonomic and somatic responses,Expand

Activity-Dependent Presynaptic and Postsynaptic Structural Plasticity in the Mature Cerebellum
Two models of spine formation have been proposed. Spines can derive from emerging dendritic filopodia that have encountered presynaptic partners, or presynaptic molecules may induce the spineExpand

Cerebellum and emotional behavior
Fear conditioning involves learning that a previously neutral stimulus (CS) predicts an aversive unconditioned stimulus (US). Lesions of the cerebellar vermis may affect fear memory without alteringExpand

Synapse formation and clustering of neuroligin-2 in the absence of GABAA receptors
GABAergic synapses are crucial for brain function, but the mechanisms underlying inhibitory synaptogenesis are unclear. Here, we show that postnatal Purkinje cells (PCs) of GABAAα1 knockout (KO) miceExpand

Involvement of cerebellum in emotional behavior.
In the last decade a growing body of data revealed that the cerebellum is involved in the regulation of the affective reactions as well as in forming the association between sensory stimuli and theirExpand
