The cerebellum is critical for motor learning. Current cerebellar learning models follow the Marr/Albus paradigm, in which climbing fibers provide error signals that shape plastic synapses between parallel fibers and Purkinje cells. However, climbing fibers have slow and largely random discharge, and seem unlikely to provide error signals with resolution sufficient to guide cerebellar learning. Parallel fibers carry error signals and could direct the plasticity of their own synapses, but the… CONTINUE READING
