The rabbit nictitating membrane (NM) preparation was developed in 1962 by Gormezano as a model system for classical conditioning. It had many features that made it ideal for use in exploring the laws of this conditioning paradigm, including easily obtainable subjects, good control of stimulus delivery and precise response specifications. Most importantly, the preparation evidenced very low spontaneous response rates and showed no evidence of nonassociative effects of sensitization and… Expand

TLDR
Evidence for learning-related plasticity in the cerebellum at the cellular level comes from studies demonstrating a learning-specific increase in Purkinje cell excitability following NMR conditioning, which increased during the course of learning and persisted for at least 1 month after training.
