Golgi cells are important players in the function of the cerebellar cortex, controlling the flow of incoming information from mossy fibres to the granule cells, which excite other cortical neurons. We recently showed that in anaesthetized rats most Golgi cells respond to stimulation of afferents from a very wide peripheral receptive field with a long-lasting depression of firing. These responses are mediated via a crossed ascending afferent pathway but the supraspinal part of this pathway is… CONTINUE READING
