Adaptive mechanisms in the elasmobranch hindbrain

Direct evidence from intracellular studies and direct electrical stimulation of the parallel fiber projection support an adaptive filter model that places a principal site of the filter's plasticity at the synapses between parallel fibers and projection neurons.

Neural simulations of adaptive reafference suppression in the elasmobranch electrosensory system

A neural model and computer simulation results are presented that support the hypothesis that the adaptive component of the electrosensory system may involve an anti-Hebbian form of synaptic plasticity at molecular layer synapses onto ascending efferent neurons, the principal output neurons of the nucleus.

Cerebellar-like Structures 2 Functional Plasticity 4 Adaptive Sensory Filtering in the Electrosense 5 The Mechanosensory Lateral Line

That changes in AEN activity patterns were predicted by the adaptive filter model suggest that the mechanism is not just a specialization of the electrosense, and it may be underlying stimulus response conditioning in the mechanosensory system as well.

A cerebellum-like circuit in the lateral line system of fish cancels mechanosensory input associated with its own movements

Examination of the function of a primitive cerebellum-like structure contributes to ongoing efforts to understand, from an evolutionary perspective, the functional diversity of the vertebrate cerebellar evolution in animal behavior.

Plasticity in a cerebellar-like structure: suppressing reafference during episodic behaviors

It is demonstrated that the cancellation signals can be developed incrementally, persist for at least a 3 h rest period without reinforcement, and are extinguished within minutes when the association of sensory stimulus and fin movement or parallel fiber stimulation no longer exists.

Electroreception: Extracting Behaviorally Important Signals from Noise

The specializations of receptors and CNS so well developed in these fishes allow us to recognize important general principles operating in other sensory systems and in other vertebrates.

Influences of Motor Systems on Electrosensory Processing

This chapter reviews a substantial body of work elucidating the synaptic, cellular, and circuit mechanisms for predicting and canceling self-generated sensory inputs in electrosensory systems in fish.

Recent studies of the South American weakly electric fish Apteronotus leptorhynchus aimed at determining how the animals differentiate self-generated or reafferent electrosensory stimuli from those that are more behaviorally relevant are summarized.




Evidence for the common mode suppression hypothesis is provided here in skates by the observation that the response to an artificial common mode stimulus that is independent of ventilation and delivered through an electrode inserted into the animal's gut is also suppressed by the medullary neurons.

Site of Neural Attenuation of Responses to Self-Vocalized Sounds in Echolocating Bats

Bats of the genus Myotis emit intense orientation sounds for echolocation and has a neural mechanism in the brain for attenuation of responses to self-vocalized orientation and nonorientation sounds.

An efference copy which is modified by reafferent input.

In electric fish of the mormyrid family, an efference copy is present in the brain region that receives afferent input from ampullary electroreceptors, and it probably reduces the central effects of activity in Ampullary receptors evoked by the electric organ discharge.

Use of an extraretinal signal by monkey superior colliculus neurons to distinguish real from self-induced stimulus movement.

These cells in the superior colliculus receive an extraretinal input which permits them to differentiate betweent real stimulus movements and stimulus movements resulting from the monkey's own eye movements.

Storage of a sensory pattern by anti-Hebbian synaptic plasticity in an electric fish.

A case of synaptic plasticity which involves identifiable sensory and motor signals and which appears to mediate the storage of an image of past sensory input is described, suggesting that dendritic spikes and plasticity at inhibitory synapses are involved.

Studies on a primitive cerebellar cortex I. The anatomy of the lateral-line lobes of the dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula

The lateral-line lobes of the dogfish hind-brain were examined with the light microscope and it was found that in other features the lateral- line lobes are quite unlike the true cerebellum.

Synaptic modification of parallel fibre‐Purkinje cell transmission in in vitro guinea‐pig cerebellar slices.

In in vitro slices of the cerebellum obtained from guinea‐pigs, synaptic transmission from parallel fibres to Purkinje cells and its modification by paired stimulation of parallel fibre and climbing fibres were studied, finding no associated changes in the membrane potential, the input resistance, or the magnitudes of climbing fibre responses in any of the cases.

Cerebellar long‐term potentiation under suppressed postsynaptic Ca2+ activity

It is suggested that postsynaptic Ca2+ activity in Purkinje cells is negatively correlated to the direction of plastic changes and that the Ca2+.

The posterior lateral line lobe is a rhombencephalic laminated structure that contains an asymmetry in the dendritic fields and in the collateral plexus of neurons of the posterior lobe, such that their long axis runs in the sagittal plane.
