Cerebellar long-term depression: characterization, signal transduction, and functional roles.
  • M. Ito
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Physiological reviews
  • 1 July 2001
Cerebellar Purkinje cells exhibit a unique type of synaptic plasticity, namely, long-term depression (LTD). When two inputs to a Purkinje cell, one from a climbing fiber and the other from a set ofExpand

Control of mental activities by internal models in the cerebellum
  • M. Ito
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Nature Reviews Neuroscience
  • 1 April 2008
The intricate neuronal circuitry of the cerebellum is thought to encode internal models that reproduce the dynamic properties of body parts. These models are essential for controlling the movement ofExpand

Size and position invariance of neuronal responses in monkey inferotemporal cortex.
1. Object vision is largely invariant to changes of retinal images of objects in size and position. To reveal neuronal mechanisms of this invariance, we recorded activities from single cells in theExpand

Deletion of FMR1 in Purkinje Cells Enhances Parallel Fiber LTD, Enlarges Spines, and Attenuates Cerebellar Eyelid Conditioning in Fragile X Syndrome
Absence of functional FMRP causes Fragile X syndrome. Abnormalities in synaptic processes in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus contribute to cognitive deficits in Fragile X patients. So far, theExpand

The molecular organization of cerebellar long-term depression
  • M. Ito
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Nature Reviews Neuroscience
  • 1 November 2002
Synaptic plasticity is an important cellular mechanism for the formation of memory in neuronal circuits of the brain. Research during the past two decades has revealed surprisingly complexExpand

Consensus Paper: The Cerebellum's Role in Movement and Cognition
While the cerebellum's role in motor function is well recognized, the nature of its concurrent role in cognitive function remains considerably less clear. The current consensus paper gathers diverseExpand

Mechanisms of motor learning in the cerebellum
  • M. Ito
  • Psychology, Biology
  • Brain Research
  • 1 December 2000
How the elaborate neuronal circuit in the cerebellum operates and is involved in motor learning is a question addressed in earnest in studies on the cerebellum. During the past four decades,Expand

  • M. Ito
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Neurosciences
  • 1 November 1993
During the past three decades, knowledge of the cerebellum has increased markedly, and research has yielded important new concepts such as micro- zones of the cerebellar cortex, synaptic plasticityExpand
