Dopaminergic regulation of vestibulo-cerebellar circuits through unipolar brush cells

It is proposed that the LC regulates cerebellar cortex activity by co-releasing dopamine onto unipolar brush cells (UBCs) to modulate their response to Cerebellar inputs.

Norepinephrine and Synaptic Transmission in the Cerebellum

There is now substantial evidence of a role for the NE system in modulating the response properties of individual cerebellar neurons to synaptic inputs rather than transmitting moment-to-moment details of modality specific information.

In and out of the loop: external and internal modulation of the olivo-cerebellar loop

Modulatory processes in the olivo-cerebellar loop are reviewed, including the relationship between neuromodulators and the animal behavioral states, and three types of neurons are reviewed.

Cerebellar dopamine D2 receptors regulate social behaviors.

It is demonstrated that cerebellar dopamine D2 receptors in mice are preferentially expressed in Purkinje cells (PCs) and regulate synaptic efficacy onto PCs and found that changes in D2R levels in PCs of male mice during adulthood alter sociability and preference for social novelty without affecting motor functions.

The cholinergic system in the cerebellum: from structure to function

The cerebellar cholinergic input plays an important role in the modulation of Cerebellar functions; therefore, cholinergy abnormalities could induce physiological dysfunctions.

Cerebellar circuitry as a neuronal machine

The olivo-cerebellar system: a key to understanding the functional significance of intrinsic oscillatory brain properties

The generalization into a more global view of intrinsic rhythmicity occurred initially with the demonstration that the thalamus has similar oscillatory properties and the ionic properties responsible for some oscillatory activity were, in fact, similar to those in the IO.

Gating of Long-Term Potentiation by Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors at the Cerebellum Input Stage

Results show that gating mechanisms mediated by specific subtypes of nicotinic receptors are required to control the LTD/LTP balance at the mossy fibre-granule cell relay in order to regulate cerebellar plasticity and behavioural adaptation.

Histaminergic afferent system in the cerebellum: structure and function

Considering the hypothalamus is a high regulatory center for autonomic and visceral activities, the hypothalamocerebellar histaminergic fibers/projections, bridging the nonsomatic center to somatic structure, may play a critical role in the somatic-nonsomatic integration.



Motor learning deficits in aged rats are correlated with loss of cerebellar noradrenergic function

Serotonin-Driven Long-Range Inhibitory Connections in the Cerebellar Cortex

Serotonin modulation of Lugaro cells may constitute an intracortical switch involved in information patterning at the level of Golgi cells and granule cells populations, and particularly in synchronizations recorded along the transverse axisin vivo.

Diffusion of nitric oxide can facilitate cerebellar learning: A simulation study.

It is shown that biologically plausible diffusion leads to an increase in information transfer of the error signals to the PCs when the IO firing rate is ultra-low, which enhances cerebellar learning as shown by improved performance in an arm-reaching task.

Serotonergic control of cerebellar mossy fiber activity by modulation of signal transfer by rat pontine nuclei neurons.

5-HT increases the excitability of PN neurons but decreases the synaptic transmission on them, and the selective enhancement of synaptic facilitation may, however, allow high-frequency inputs to effectively drive Pn neurons, thus the PN may act as a high-pass filter during periods of 5-HT release.

In rat, cat and oppossum, the perikarya of origin are located in the brain stem raphe nuclei and in other brainstem structures, the projections to the cerebellar layers and deep nuclei include synaptic connections, but also non synaptic terminals, espedaily in a diffuse cortical plexus.

A model of cerebellar metaplasticity.

This work proposes here that the cerebellar cortex may use metaplasticity, and demonstrates this by introducing the Cerebellar Adaptive Rate Learning (CARL) algorithm that concentrates learning on those Purkinje cell synapses whose adaptation is most relevant to learning an overall pattern.
