  author={Sang-Yoon Kim and Woochang Lim},
We consider the Pavlovian eyeblink conditioning (EBC) via repeated presentation of paired conditioned stimulus (tone) and unconditioned stimulus (airpuff). The influence of various temporal recoding of granule cells on the EBC is investigated in a cerebellar network where the connection probability pc from Golgi to granule cells is changed. In an optimal case of , individual granule cells show various well- and ill-matched firing patterns relative to the unconditioned stimulus. Then, these…

Effect of Diverse Recoding of Granule Cells on Optokinetic Response in A Cerebellar Ring Network with Synaptic Plasticity

The more diverse in recoding of granule (GR) cells, the more effective in motor learning for the optokinetic response (OKR) adaptation.

Temporal specificity of long-term depression in parallel fiber--Purkinje synapses in rat cerebellar slice.

The results suggest that temporal conditions for LTD induction share some similarity to associative learning of discrete motor responses.

A spiking network model for passage-of-time representation in the cerebellum

It is suggested that the recurrent network in the granular layer and NMDA channels in granule and Golgi cells play an essential role in the timing mechanisms in the cerebellum, whereas the glomerulus serves to realize a robust representation of time.

Beyond parallel fiber LTD: the diversity of synaptic and non-synaptic plasticity in the cerebellum

Recent electrophysiological experiments that have described a rich variety of use-dependent plasticity in cerebellum, including long-term potentiation (LTP) and LTD of excitatory and inhibitory synapses, and persistent modulation of intrinsic neuronal excitability are reviewed.

Cerebellar-Dependent Expression of Motor Learning during Eyeblink Conditioning in Head-Fixed Mice

The results pave the way for using eyeblink conditioning in head-fixed mice as a platform for applying next-generation genetic tools to address molecular and circuit-level questions about cerebellar function in health and disease.

Conditioned eyeblink response consists of two distinct components.

The results show that the eyeblink CR consists of at least two components, CR1 and CR2, which most likely originate either as a direct central command from the cerebellum or in the output pathway before the facial nucleus.
