The unipolar brush cell (UBC), a small interneuron occurring at high density in the granular layer of the mammalian vestibulocerebellum, receives a giant glutamatergic synapse from a single mossy fiber (MF) rosette, usually on a brush of dendritic branchlets. MF stimulation produces a current in the UBC several orders of magnitude greater in duration than at other glutamatergic synapses. We assumed that the cytoskeleton would have a special role in plasticity of the MF-UBC synapse… CONTINUE READING
