Cerebellar Purkinje cells are excited by two afferent pathways: climbing and mossy fibers. Climbing fibers evoke large "complex spikes" (CSs) that discharge at low frequencies. Mossy fibers synapse on granule cells whose parallel fibers excite Purkinje cells and may contribute to the genesis of "simple spikes" (SSs). Both afferent systems convey vestibular information to folia 9c-10. After making a unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL) in mice, we tested how the discharge of CSs and SSs was changed… Expand
