The brain generates many rhythmic activities, and the olivo-cerebellar system is not an exception. In recent years, the cerebellum has revealed activities ranging from low frequency to very high-frequency oscillations. These rhythms depend on the brain functional state and are typical of certain circuit sections or specific neurons. Interestingly, the(More)
Since the discoveries of Camillo Golgi and Ramón y Cajal, the precise cellular organization of the cerebellum has inspired major computational theories, which have then influenced the scientific thought not only on the cerebellar function but also on the brain as a whole. However, six major issues revealing a discrepancy between morphologically inspired(More)
In highly power constrained sensor networks, harvesting energy from the environment makes prolonged or even perpetual execution feasible. In such energy harvesting systems, energy sources are characterized as being regenerative. Regenerative energy sources fundamentally change the problem of power scheduling for embedded devices. Instead of the problem(More)
Acetyl-L-carnitine is known to improve many aspects of the neural activity even if its exact role in neurotransmission is still unknown. This study investigates the effects of acetyl-L-carnitine in T segmental sensory neurons of the leech Hirudo medicinalis. These neurons are involved in some forms of neural plasticity associated with learning processes.(More)
The effects of noradrenaline (NA) on the inhibitory responses to GABA were studied in vivo in neurons of the vestibular nuclei of the rat using extracellular recordings of single unit electrical activity and a microiontophoretic technique of drug application in loco. NA application influenced GABA-evoked inhibitions in 82% of tested neurons, depressing them(More)
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a natural molecule widely distributed in vertebrate and invertebrate nervous system. It is known to have significant effects on neuronal activity playing a role as neuroprotective and anti-nociceptive agent, as well as neuromodulatory factor. About its capability of affecting learning processes the available data are controversial. In(More)
