Long-term modification of transmission efficacy at synapses is the cellular basis of memory and learning1–4. A special type of synaptic plasticity in the cerebellum was postulated theoretically5,6, and has since been verified4,7–9. Each cerebellar Purkinje cell (PC) receives two distinct excitatory inputs, one from parallel fibres (PFs) and the other from a… CONTINUE READING
