The cells of the inferior olivary (IO) nucleus generate a large repertoire of electrical signals, among them subthreshold oscillations of the membrane potential (STO). To date, subthreshold oscillations have been studied at the level of single-cell recordings, from which network properties were inferred. In this study we used whole cell patch recordings and optical imaging to address the following issues: 1) synchrony of STO in neighboring neurons; 2) stability of the oscillatory activity in… Expand
Rhythmic Episodes of Subthreshold Membrane Potential Oscillations in the Rat Inferior Olive Nuclei In Vivo
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in vivo, olivary neurons show both slow and fast rhythmic processes, and the transient nature of these oscillatory epochs accounts for the difficulties to uncover them by prolonged recordings of complex spikes activity in the cerebellar cortex. Expand
Inferior Olive Oscillations Gate Transmission of Motor Cortical Activity to the Cerebellum
TLDR
Results indicate that IO neurons respond as nonlinear oscillators to afferent signals in ketamine-xylazine-anesthetized rats, and that IO oscillatory properties underlie the resonance peaks in the frequency-response curves. Expand
The Generation of Phase Differences and Frequency Changes in a Network Model of Inferior Olive Subthreshold Oscillations
TLDR
The architecture of the network of electrically coupled neurons in combination with modulation of the inter-cluster coupling strengths can account for the experimentally observed frequency changes and the phase differences. Expand
Using subthreshold events to characterize the functional architecture of electrically coupled networks
TLDR
A new perspective on the functional and structural organization of the olivary nucleus is provided, insights into two different subthreshold non-synaptic events, and a novel experimental and theoretical approach to the study of electrically-coupled networks are provided. Expand
Using subthreshold events to characterize the functional architecture of the electrically coupled inferior olive network
TLDR
It is shown that whereas the fast events represent intrinsic regenerative activity, the slow events reflect the electrical connectivity between neurons (‘spikelets’) and are suggestive of a clustered organization. Expand
Electrotonic coupling in the inferior olivary nucleus revealed by simultaneous double patch recordings.
TLDR
Using the physiological data, it is estimated that each olivary neuron is directly coupled to about 50 neurons forming two distinct networks of curly and straight cells. Expand
Transient dynamics and rhythm coordination of inferior olive spatio-temporal patterns
TLDR
This work builds a large scale IO network model of electrically coupled conductance-based neurons to study the emerging spatio-temporal patterns of its transient neuronal activity, and shows that the presence of regions with different excitability levels creates sinks and sources of coordinated activity which shape the propagation of spike wave fronts. Expand
Modeling network phenomena in the Inferior Olive: II. Modulation of sub-threshold oscillations
TLDR
It is argued that changing the coupling strengths of the network by GABAergic inputs from the deep cerebellar nucleus (DCN) are well suited to adjust the coupling strength as they are known to shunt gap-junctional currents when activated. Expand
Rhythmicity without Synchrony in the Electrically Uncoupled Inferior Olive
TLDR
It is concluded that electrical coupling is not necessary for the generation of spontaneous subthreshold oscillations in single IO neurons, but that coupling can serve to synchronize rhythmic activity among IO neurons. Expand
Heterogeneous Expression of T-type Ca2+ Channels Defines Different Neuronal Populations in the Inferior Olive of the Mouse
TLDR
The present work shows the existence of at least two neuronal populations that can be distinguished on the basis of the presence or absence of low-voltage activated Ca2+ channels and indicates the functional variability within and between olivary sub nuclei. Expand

Subthreshold oscillations and resonant behavior: two manifestations of the same mechanism
TLDR
The results show that the resonant behavior of individual neurons is the basis of the oscillatory behavior of the network and that resonance can serve as a lumped parameter which encodes thescillatory tendency of a neuron. Expand
Development and properties of spontaneous oscillations of the membrane potential in inferior olivary neurons in the rat.
TLDR
The hypothesis that oscillations of the membrane potential in IO neurons depend not only on specific membrane conductances but also on electrotonic coupling between the neurons is supported. Expand

Oscillatory properties of guinea‐pig inferior olivary neurones and their pharmacological modulation: an in vitro study.
TLDR
Harmaline was found to increase cell excitability by hyperpolarizing the neurones and shifting the inactivation curve for the somatic Ca2+ spike to a more positive membrane potential level. Expand
GABAergic modulation of complex spike activity by the cerebellar nucleoolivary pathway in rat.
TLDR
It is concluded that the cerebellar nucleoolivary projection to the olivary glomeruli modulates the effective electrotonic coupling between olivARY neurons, and thereby carves out ensembles of neurons whose activity is synchronized. Expand

TLDR
Intracellular recordings from 185 neurones in this nucleus reveal that antidromic, orthodromic or direct stimulation generates action potentials consisting of a fast spike followed by an after‐depolarizing potential (ADP), which plays a central role in the rebound potential following the AHP.

Low-amplitude oscillations in the inferior olive: a model based on electrical coupling of neurons with heterogeneous channel densities.
TLDR
It is suggested that the subthreshold oscillations observed in the inferior olive can emerge from the electrical coupling between neurons with different channel densities, even if the inferior Olive nucleus contains no or just a small proportion of spontaneously oscillating neurons. Expand
Serotonin suppresses subthreshold and suprathreshold oscillatory activity of rat inferior olivary neurones in vitro
TLDR
The data indicate that serotonin suppresses the rhythmic activity of olivary neurones via 5‐HT2 receptors by inhibition of the T‐type calcium current in combination with membrane depolarization due to activation of a cation current (Ih) and block of a resting K+ current (fast IK(ir). Expand
