The nervous systems of most vertebrates include both the cerebellum and structures that are architecturally similar to the cerebellum. The cerebellum-like structures are sensory structures that receive input from the periphery in their deep layers and parallel fiber input in their molecular layers. This review describes these cerebellum-like structures and compares them with the cerebellum itself. The cerebellum-like structures in three groups of fish act as adaptive sensory processors in which… Expand
The Cerebellum and Cerebellum-Like Structures of Cartilaginous Fishes
TLDR
The cerebellum is an evolutionary innovation in gnathostomes that is literally superimposed on pre-existing underlying brain structures and pathways and can be considered an example of ‘subsumption architecture’, a term that describes the addition of modules that add computational power while maintaining existing fundamental functionality.

Adaptive processing in electrosensory systems: Links to cerebellar plasticity and learning
TLDR
Comparisons between cerebellum-like structures and the cerebellar function are drawn focusing on the properties and sites of synaptic plasticity in these structures and on connections between plasticity and learning. Expand
Functional origins of the vertebrate cerebellum from a sensory processing antecedent
TLDR
Good progress has been made in determining the fundamental processing algorithm in cerebellar-like structures, and the authors have come to understand the contribution to signal processing made by the molecular layer, which provides an adaptive filter to cancel self-generated noise in electrosensory and lateral line systems. Expand
Physiology of the cerebellum.
TLDR
The investigation of cerebellar dynamics using advanced physiologic recordings and computational models is now providing new clues on how the cerebellum network performs its internal computations. Expand
Development of the cerebellum and cerebellar neural circuits
TLDR
The anatomy and development of cerebellar neurons and their circuitry are described, and the possible roles of the cerebellum and Cerebellum‐like structures in behavior and higher cognitive functions are discussed. Expand
A comparative approach to cerebellar function: insights from electrosensory systems
TLDR
The possibility, supported by recent studies, that generating and subtracting predictions of the sensory consequences of motor commands may be core functions shared by both cerebellum-like structures and the Cerebellum is discussed. Expand

TLDR
The present account considers whether insight into an underlying function of mushroom bodies may be provided by cerebellum-like structures in vertebrates, which are similarly defined by the presence of masses of tiny granule cells that emit thin parallel fibers forming a dense molecular layer.

Deciphering Cerebellar Neural Circuitry Involved in Higher Order Functions Using the Zebrafish Model
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the cerebellum, which is derived from the dorsal part of the most anterior hindbrain and is involved in motor control and higher cognitive/emotional functions and describes the structure and development processes in zebrafish and compared with those in mammals. Expand
The Cerebellum
The cerebellum (Latin for “little brain”) is a region of the brain that plays an important role in motor control. It may also be involved in some cognitive functions such as attention and language,Expand
Evolutionary mechanisms that generate morphology and neural‐circuit diversity of the cerebellum
TLDR
How alterations of the genetic and cellular programs generated diversity of the cerebellum during evolution is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Physiological findings from three different systems suggest the hypothesis that cerebellum-like structures remove predictable features from the sensory inflow and evolutionary convergence provides the best explanation for all these similarities that cannot be explained by homology. Expand

TLDR
The main structural difference between the cerebellum and cerebellar-like structures, the inferior olivary nucleus, can be viewed as a relay station that evolution has interposed along the path of flow of primary sensory information to the cere bells. Expand

TLDR
Evidence reviewed in this paper shows that the cerebellum is associated with sensory systems used for tracking movements of targets in the environment, as well as movements made by the animal itself, in all vertebrates, not just in a few isolated cases. Expand
What the cerebellum computes
TLDR
Evidence that indicates how Pavlovian eyelid conditioning reveals cerebellar processing to be an example of feedforward control is reviewed, consistent with a variety of proposed functions of the cerebellum, including sensory-motor integration, motor coordination, motor learning and timing. Expand
Cerebellar circuits and synaptic mechanisms involved in classical eyeblink conditioning
TLDR
Eyeblink conditioning in spontaneous mutant mice deficit in Purkinje cells indicate that both the cerebellar cortex and the interpositus nucleus are important, and studies involving gene knockout mice suggest that long-term depression, a process of synaptic plasticity occurring in Pur Kinje cells, might be involved in eyeblink conditioning.

The generation and subtraction of sensory expectations within cerebellum-like structures.
TLDR
The generation of sensory expectations within cerebellum-like structures of four distinct groups of fishes, including Mormyridae; Rajidae; Scorpaenidae; and Apteronotidae, is described and it is indicated that the negative image is probably generated by means of anti-Hebbian synaptic plasticity at the parallel fiber to principal cell synapse.

Expression of zebrafish glutamate receptor delta2 in neurons with cerebellum-like wiring.
TLDR
It is found that in adult zebrafish brain, glurdelta2 mRNA was expressed not only in cerebellar Purkinje cells, but also in the crest cells of the medial octavolateral nucleus and the type I neurons of the optic tectum. Expand
The Purkinje cell class may extend beyond the cerebellum
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that three independent murine mutations, Lurcher, Purkinje cell degeneration and Staggerer, which result in the postnatal degeneration of Purkinja cells, also cause the elimination of cartwheel cells of the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Expand

TLDR
The dorsal cochlear nucleus integrates acoustic with multimodal sensory inputs from widespread areas of the brain and its sensitivity to antagonists of N-methyl-d-aspartate and metabotropic glutamate receptors differs in fusiform and cartwheel cells. Expand
