A condition characterized by abnormal posturing of the limbs that is associated with injury to the brainstem. This may occur as a clinical manifestation or induced experimentally in animals. The extensor reflexes are exaggerated leading to rigid extension of the limbs accompanied by hyperreflexia and opisthotonus. This condition is usually caused by lesions which occur in the region of the brainstem that lies between the red nuclei and the vestibular nuclei. In contrast, decorticate rigidity is characterized by flexion of the elbows and wrists with extension of the legs and feet. The causative lesion for this condition is located above the red nuclei and usually consists of diffuse cerebral damage. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p358)

Quantitative morphological studies of developing human cerebellar cortex in various disease states. (1/592)

A quantitative morphological assessment was carried out of the cellularity and staining properties of the cells of the layers of the human cerebellar cortex, both in the normal child and in 41 children suffering from a series of disorders including mental retardation. A computerized image analyser and highly standardized procedures were used. All of the cases of mental retardation and some cases with congenital cardiac anomalies showed abnormal cell concentrations and staining properties. 3 cases of 'cot death' also showed abnormal results. These findings are presented as a new measurable aspect of brain disease, and as a indication for further study.  (+info)

Novel form of spreading acidification and depression in the cerebellar cortex demonstrated by neutral red optical imaging. (2/592)

A novel form of spreading acidification and depression in the rat cerebellar cortex was imaged in vivo using the pH-sensitive dye, Neutral red. Surface stimulation evoked an initial beam of increased fluorescence (i.e., decreased pH) that spread rostrally and caudally across the folium and into neighboring folia. A transient but marked suppression in the excitability of the parallel fiber-Purkinje cell circuitry accompanied the spread. Characteristics differentiating this phenomenon from the spreading depression of Leao include: high speed of propagation on the surface (average of 450 microm/s), stable extracellular DC potential, no change in blood vessel diameter, and repeatability at short intervals. This propagating acidification constitutes a previously unknown class of neuronal processing in the cerebellar cortex.  (+info)

Gating of transmission in climbing fibre paths to cerebellar cortical C1 and C3 zones in the rostral paramedian lobule during locomotion in the cat. (3/592)

1. Climbing fibre field potentials evoked by low intensity (non-noxious) electrical stimulation of the ipsilateral superficial radial nerve have been recorded in the rostral paramedian lobule (PML) in awake cats. Chronically implanted microwires were used to monitor the responses at eight different C1 and C3 zone sites during quiet rest and during steady walking on a moving belt. The latency and other characteristics of the responses identified them as mediated mainly via the dorsal funiculus-spino-olivocerebellar path (DF-SOCP). 2. At each site, mean size of response (measured as the area under the field, in mV ms) varied systematically during the step cycle without parallel fluctuations in size of the peripheral nerve volley. Largest responses occurred overwhelmingly during the stance phase of the step cycle in the ipsilateral forelimb while smallest responses occurred most frequently during swing. 3. Simultaneous recording from pairs of C1 zone sites located in the anterior lobe (lobule V) and C1 or C3 zone sites in rostral PML revealed markedly different patterns of step-related modulation. 4. The findings shed light on the extent to which the SOCPs projecting to different parts of a given zone can be regarded as functionally uniform and have implications as to their reliability as channels for conveying peripheral signals to the cerebellum during locomotion.  (+info)

Electrotonic coupling interacts with intrinsic properties to generate synchronized activity in cerebellar networks of inhibitory interneurons. (4/592)

Exploring the organization and function of local inhibitory networks is an essential step on the way to understand the principles of brain operation. We show here that molecular layer inhibitory interneurons of the guinea pig cerebellar cortex are organized as local networks, generating synchronous activity. Simultaneous recording from two adjacent interneurons revealed a direct current flow between synchronized pairs of neurons. Blocking inhibitory or excitatory synaptic transmission did not alter the synchronization. The electrotonic coupling coefficient (average 0.1) depended mainly on the input resistance of the postsynaptic cell, indicating a homogenous coupling resistance between different pairs. A presynaptic action potential generated a short, attenuated spikelet in the postsynaptic cell. The passive current flow was amplified by voltage-dependent intrinsic currents to create a reciprocal interplay between the presynaptic and postsynaptic cells. This interplay results in a time window for synchronization that is wider than expected from the duration of the spikelet. Intracellular staining with biocytin revealed high incidence of dye coupling. Furthermore, the interneurons located superficially in the molecular layer tend to form larger networks compared with the inner interneurons. We propose that weakly coupled inhibitory networks can generate loosely synchronous activity, which results from the interaction of electrical coupling and intrinsic currents.  (+info)

Dopamine reuptake inhibition in the rostral agranular insular cortex produces antinociception. (5/592)

We provide evidence for an antinociceptive effect of dopamine in the rat cerebral cortex that is mediated through descending nociceptive inhibition of spinal neurons. Injection of the dopamine reuptake inhibitor GBR-12935 in the rostral agranular insular cortex (RAIC), a cortical area that receives a dense dopaminergic projection and is involved in descending antinociception (Burkey et al.,1996), resulted in dose-dependent inhibition of formalin-induced nociceptive behavior, without any alteration of motor function. Injection of the dopamine reuptake inhibitor in the surrounding cortical areas had no effect on nociceptive behaviors. GBR-12935 also produced a reduction in noxious stimulus-induced c-fos expression in nociceptive areas of the spinal dorsal horn, suggesting that dopamine in the RAIC acts in part through descending antinociception. Electrophysiological recording from single wide dynamic range-type spinal dorsal horn neurons confirmed the descending nociceptive inhibitory effect. GBR-12935 in the RAIC significantly reduced neuronal responses evoked by noxious thermal stimulation of the skin, an effect that was reversed by local administration of the selective D1 receptor antagonist SCH-23390. Finally, administration of SCH-23390 alone in the RAIC decreased paw withdrawal latencies from noxious heat, suggesting that dopamine acts tonically in the cortex to inhibit nociception.  (+info)

Selective disruption of "late onset" sagittal banding patterns by ectopic expression of engrailed-2 in cerebellar Purkinje cells. (6/592)

To explore the role of Engrailed proteins in development of the cerebellum, Engrailed-2 (En-2) was ectopically expressed in cerebellar Purkinje cells from the late embryonic stage into adulthood. The fundamental organization of Purkinje cell sagittal zones as revealed by the "early onset" markers L7-beta-gal and cadherin-8 was found to be virtually identical to that in wild type. In contrast, "late onset" sagittal banding patterns revealed by Purkinje cell markers zebrin I, zebrin II, and 9-O-acetyl GD3 Ganglioside (P-Path), and the granule cell marker NADPH-diaphorase, were disrupted. In general, although some evidence of banding was still detectable, boundaries defined by the latter markers were poorly defined, and the patterns overall took on a diffuse appearance. In parallel with the changes in late onset markers, anterograde tracing of spinocerebellar axons revealed a general diffusion of the mossy fiber projection pattern in lobule VIII and the anterior lobe. These observations suggest that at least two separate mediolateral boundary systems exist in the cerebellum, and these are differentially affected by ectopic En-2 expression. Alternatively, one boundary system exists that remains primarily intact in the mutant, but recognition of this system by a set of late developmental events is perturbed.  (+info)

Neurotrophic activity of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide on rat cerebellar cortex during development. (7/592)

High concentrations of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) receptors are present in the external granule cell layer of the rat cerebellum during postnatal development. In vitro studies have shown that PACAP promotes cell survival and neurite outgrowth on immature cerebellar granule cells in primary culture. In the present study, we have investigated the effect of PACAP on the development of the cerebellar cortex of 8-day-old rats. Incubation of cultured granule cells for 12 or 18 h with PACAP provoked a significant increase in the rate of incorporation of [(3)H]thymidine in cultured granule cells, suggesting that PACAP could stimulate the proliferation of granule cells. After 96 h of treatment, in vivo administration of PACAP provoked a transient increase in the number of granule cells in the molecular layer and in the internal granule cell layer. In contrast, PACAP did not affect the number of Purkinje cells. The augmentation of the number of granule cells evoked by PACAP was significantly inhibited by the PACAP receptor antagonist PACAP(6-38). Administration of PACAP also caused a significant increase in the volume of the cerebellar cortex. The present study provides evidence that PACAP can act in vivo as a trophic factor during rat brain development. Our data indicate that PACAP increases proliferation and/or inhibits programmed cell death of granule cells, as well as stimulating neuronal migration from the external granule cell layer toward the internal granule cell layer.  (+info)

Simulations of cerebellar motor learning: computational analysis of plasticity at the mossy fiber to deep nucleus synapse. (8/592)

We question the widely accepted assumption that a molecular mechanism for long-term expression of synaptic plasticity is sufficient to explain the persistence of memories. Instead, we show that learning and memory require that these cellular mechanisms be correctly integrated within the architecture of the neural circuit. To illustrate this general conclusion, our studies are based on the well characterized synaptic organization of the cerebellum and its relationship to a simple form of motor learning. Using computer simulations of cerebellar-mediated eyelid conditioning, we examine the ability of three forms of plasticity at mossy fiber synapses in the cerebellar nucleus to contribute to learning and memory storage. Results suggest that when the simulation is exposed to reasonable patterns of "background" cerebellar activity, only one of these three rules allows for the retention of memories. When plasticity at the mossy fiber synapse is controlled by nucleus or climbing fiber activity, the circuit is unable to retain memories because of interactions within the network that produce spontaneous drift of synaptic strength. In contrast, a plasticity rule controlled by the activity of the Purkinje cell allows for a memory trace that is resistant to ongoing activity in the circuit. These results suggest specific constraints for theories of cerebellar motor learning and have general implications regarding the mechanisms that may contribute to the persistence of memories.  (+info)

GoCs in acute slices of cerebellar cortex from P25 rats (see Materials and Methods) were initially identified on the basis of their location within the GrC layer and their large somata (,15 μm). In LCA recordings, using pipettes containing extracellular solution, most of these putative GoCs (83%) exhibited spontaneous rhythmic firing (9 ± 5 Hz; n = 38), consistent with previous studies (Mitchell and Silver, 2000; Forti et al., 2006). For whole-cell recordings, we included a fluorescent tracer dye in the intracellular solution and visualized the cell morphology with fluorescence microscopy. Only those cells with basal dendrites in the GrC layer and ascending dendrites in the molecular layer were confirmed as GoCs (Eccles et al., 1967; Dieudonne, 1998) and included in our dataset (64 of 68). The extent of the ascending and basolateral arborization was ∼200 and 100 μm, respectively, in agreement with previous morphological description of GoCs (Eccles et al., 1967; Palay and Chan-Palay, 1974; ...

A high-affinity specific binding site is reported for [3H]AVM B1a with K Dvalues of 1.4 nM as a rough estimate for dog brain (Pong and Wang, 1980) and 2.5 nM for rat cerebellar cortex (Drexler and Sieghart, 1984a) and for its dihydro analog [3H]ivermectin with aK D value of 22 nM for rat cerebral cortex (Schaeffer and Haines, 1989). In our preliminary study, we found that the specific binding sites for AVM B1a are widely distributed in rat whole brain but particularly enriched in the cerebellum, which is consistent with the findings of Pong and Wang (1980). We then evaluated the binding properties of [3H]AVM B1a in primary cultures of cerebellar neurons and directly investigated the effects of AVM B1a on the GABA-gated chloride channel with [3H]EBOB binding and36Cl− influx as indicators. The use of intact neuron cultures made it possible to perform radioligand binding and functional assays of 36Cl−influx in comparable and physiological conditions.. Specific binding of [3H]AVM B1a in intact ...
The existence of coated vesicles (CVs) in neurons has been known since 1961 when Gray reported complex vesicles in mossy fibre endings of the rat cerebellar cortex. He described them as spheres, 60-80 nm in diameter, surrounded by shells consisting of closely packed 15-20 nm vesicular bodies. This unusual structural organisation was probably only an apparent one. Today the structure assigned to CVs in neurons and other cells, which is based upon detailed analyses of isolated CVs, consists of a spherical lipid-bilayer vesicle enclosed by a protein coat composed of pentagonal and hexagonal subunits (Kanaseki & Kadota, 1969; Kadota & Kadota, 1973a, b; Pearse, 1975; Crowther, Finch & Pearse, 1976; Woods, Woodward & Roth, 1978). The comparison of CVs isolated from different tissues (Pearse, 1975, 1976; Woods et al., 1978) and in thin sections of isolated tissues (Nickel, Vogel & Waser, 1967) revealed no significant differences between the structure and chemical properties of CVs in neurons and in ...

It has been known for a long time that GABAergic Purkinje cells in the cerebellar cortex, as well as their target neurons in the cerebellar nuclei, are spontaneously active. The cerebellar output will, therefore, depend on how input is integrated into this spontaneous activity. It has been shown that input from climbing fibers originating in the inferior olive controls the spontaneous activity in Purkinje cells. While blocking climbing fiber input to the Purkinje cells causes a dramatic increase in the firing rate, increased climbing fiber activity results in reduced Purkinje cell activity. However, the exact calibration of this regulation has not been examined systematically. Here we examine the relation between climbing fiber stimulation frequency and Purkinje cell activity in unanesthetized decerebrated ferrets. The results revealed a gradual suppression of Purkinje cell activity, starting at climbing fiber stimulation frequencies as low as 0.5 Hz. At 4 Hz, Purkinje cells were completely ...

AU - Kusano, K.. PY - 1976/5. Y1 - 1976/5. N2 - The content of glutamate, GABA, aspartate, glycine and alanine was determined in the cerebellum, brain stem and cerebrum of three different mutant mice which have been named staggerer, weaver and nervous on the basis of neurological symptoms. In the staggerer and weaver mutants there is an almost complete absence of granule cells in the cerebellar cortex while in the nervous mutant there is a loss of Purkinje cells (and to a lesser extent a loss of granule cells) in the cerebellar cortex. In the cerebellum of the weaver mutant, the content of glutamate was significantly lower (P,0.025) than control values (8.77±0.76 vs 12.0±1.3 μmol/g tissue wet wt) and the contents of GABA and glycine were significantly greater than normal levels. ...

Preparation of polyclonal antibody against aldolase C. A peptide (CGAATEEFIKRAEMNGLAAQGKYE) that consisted of the amino acid sequence 322-344 of rat aldolase C (Mukai et al., 1991), plus a cysteine residue at the N terminus to facilitate conjugation to the carrier protein KLH, was synthesized and purified. This peptide was used for immunization, an ELISA test, affinity purification of antisera, and a blocking test in immunohistochemistry. Two rabbits (69075 and 69076) were immunized by five subcutaneous injections of 0.2 mg of the peptide conjugated with KLH at 2, 3, 2, and 2 week intervals. The rabbits were exsanguinated 2 weeks after the final boost. Crude antisera of both rabbits were affinity purified against the immobilized immunizing peptide. Some purified antibody of 69076 was conjugated with biotin. The above procedures were performed by Sawady Technologies (Itabashi, Tokyo, Japan).. Western blot analysis. To test the specificity of the affinity-purified antibody, the whole cerebellum ...
Reciprocal activity between populations of neurons has been widely observed in the brain and is essential for neuronal computation. The different mechanisms by which reciprocal neuronal activity is generated remain to be established. A common motif in neuronal circuits is the presence of afferents that provide excitation to one set of principal neurons and, via interneurons, inhibition to a second set of principal neurons. This circuitry can be the substrate for generation of reciprocal signals. Here we demonstrate that this equivalent circuit in the cerebellar cortex enables the reciprocal firing rates of Purkinje cells to be efficiently generated from a common set of mossy fiber inputs. The activity of a mossy fiber is relayed to Purkinje cells positioned immediately above it by excitatory granule cells. The firing rates of these Purkinje cells increase as a linear function of mossy fiber, and thus granule cell, activity. In addition to exciting Purkinje cells positioned immediately above it, ...
Purkinje Cell Definition Purkinje cell is a large, densely branching neuron in the cerebellar cortex of the brain. These cells were first discovered in 1837 by Czech physiologist Jan Evangelista Purkinje. They are characterized by cell bodies that are flasklike in shape, by numerous branching dendrites, and by a

The cerebellum is involved in the coordination of voluntary motor movement, balance, and equilibrium and muscle tone. The cerebellum is comprised of white matter and a thin, outer layer of densely folded gray matter. The folded outer layer of the cerebellum (cerebellar cortex) has smaller and more compact folds than those of the cerebral cortex. The cerebellum contains hundreds of millions of neurons for processing data. It relays information between body muscles and areas of the cerebral cortex that are involved in motor control. ...

The glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are a family of isoenzymes involved in the detoxication of a variety of electrophilic xenobiotics. The present investigation demonstrates that GST activity and the concentration of cytosolic GSTs in cerebellar cortex of Gunn rats were increased in hyperbilirubinaemic animals compared with non-jaundiced controls. Age-dependent and region-specific increases in GST isoenzymes were seen in three regions of the cerebellar cortex of jaundiced Gunn rats, whereas GST concentrations were not altered in the brainstem, thalamus/hypothalamus, cortex or liver. Cytosolic GST activity was increased 1.3-fold in the flocculus and lateral hemispheres of 20-day-old and 1.7-fold in the flocculus, lateral hemispheres and vermis of 60-day-old jaundiced (jj; homozygous) Gunn rats compared with non-jaundiced (Jj; heterozygous) Gunn rats. H.p.l.c. was used to determine the GST subunit protein concentrations in cytosolic fractions isolated from liver and brain regions of jaundiced ...

Cerebella from 19 normal Caucasian males, ages 19-84 years, were studied using stereological methods. Cerebellum was divided into four different regions: the anterior and posterior lobe, the vermis, and the flocculonodular lobe. Total volume of the cerebellar cortex and white matter, cerebellar surface area, total Purkinje and granule cell number, and the distribution of the volumes of the Purkinje cells and their nuclei were estimated in all four regions. The global white matter was reduced by 26% with age; the mean volume of the Purkinje cell body was decreased by 33% with no decrease in the volume of the Purkinje cell nuclei. A tendency towards a 16% total cerebellar volume loss was seen without a concomitant neuron loss. No global Purkinje or granule cell loss was detected with age, total Purkinje cell number being 28 × 106 (coefficient of variation, CV = 0.16) and total granule cell number 109 × 109 (CV = 0.17). However, a significant change was observed with age in the anterior lobe, where a

In order to produce an organ with a specific shape, the correct number of cells of different lineages must be produced and precisely spatially arranged during development. Moreover, the proper spatial organization of cells in an organ is necessary for its function. In the brain, the cortex of the mammalian cerebellum (Cb) (Fig. 1A,B) and the neocortex (dorsal forebrain) of gyrencephalic mammals have a folded morphology that accommodates a large number of functionally diverse neural circuits. Each cerebellar fold receives a distinct combination of afferent inputs and therefore can be thought of as a functional unit (Larsell, 1952; Sillitoe and Joyner, 2007). Recent studies indicate that cells with one radial process projecting to the pial surface play a key role in producing folds. In the neocortex of gyrencephalic mammals, basal radial glial cells seem to be responsible for the formation of the folds, or gyri and sulci (Nonaka-Kinoshita et al., 2013; Stahl et al., 2013). In the cerebellar cortex ...
The idea is interesting, though. The cerebellar cortex is the cytoarchitecturally the most well mapped out part of the brain, due to a very stereotyped pattern. Simulations of the cerebellum have been worked on for years (I remember making a crude model on a Purkinje cell in my Comp Neuro class back in 2000), and this seems like the next logical step. While ataxia is the most notable symptom of cerebellar damage, there are distinct cognitive deficits as well. Whether these are due to the influence of cerebellum on other parts of the brain, or appears as an epiphenomenon (I cant coordinate my reaching for objects, which makes me depressed and irritable) has yet to be completely worked out ...

We have investigated the mechanisms of the increases in BFcrb produced by activation of the CF. The CF provide a strong excitatory synaptic input to the cerebellar Purkinje cells. The CF originate from the contralateral inferior olive, project directly to the cerebellar molecular layer, and make multiple synaptic contacts with Purkinje cell dendrites and molecular layer interneurons.6 Despite the fact that a Purkinje cell receives inputs only from a single CF,6 CF activation produces powerful synaptic responses in Purkinje cell dendrites29 (see reference 30 for a review). CF-induced Purkinje cell discharges are associated with increases in cerebellar glucose utilization.31 We have found that activation of the CF using harmaline elicits profound increases in BFcrb that are independent of changes in arterial pressure and blood gases. The increases in BFcrb are protracted in time and are larger in magnitude than those produced by stimulation of the PF, hypercapnia, or topical application of ...
Genetic polymorphisms in Solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 2 (SLC1A2) have been linked with essential tremor. SLC1A2 encodes excitatory amino acid transporter type 2 (EAAT2), which clears glutamate from the synaptic cleft. One postulated mechanism for essential tremor is the over-excitation of glutamatergic olivo-cerebellar climbing fibers, leading to excitotoxic death of Purkinje cells. Other glutamatergic excitatory signals are transmitted to Purkinje cells via parallel fibers of cerebellar granule neurons. Therefore, the expression level of glutamate transporters could be important in essential tremor pathogenesis. Using Western blotting, we compared the expression levels of the two main glutamate transporters in the cerebellar cortex, EAAT1 and EAAT2, in postmortem tissue from 16 essential tremor cases and 13 age-matched controls. We also studied the localization of EAAT1 and EAAT2 using immunohistochemistry in 10 essential tremor cases and 12 controls.
Climbing fiber inputs to the cerebellum encode error signals that instruct learning. Recently, evidence has accumulated to suggest that the cerebellum is also involved in the processing of reward. To study how rewarding events are encoded, we recorded the activity of climbing fibers when monkeys were engaged in an eye movement task. At the beginning of each trial, the monkeys were cued to the size of the reward that would be delivered upon successful completion of the trial. Climbing fiber activity increased when the monkeys were presented with a cue indicating a large reward, but not a small reward. Reward size did not modulate activity at reward delivery or during eye movements. Comparison between climbing fiber and simple spike activity indicated different interactions for coding of movement and reward. These results indicate that climbing fibers encode the expected reward size and suggest a general role of the cerebellum in associative learning beyond error correction.. ...
The data presented here support the hypothesis that highly erratic activity of Purkinje cells during caffeine-induced attacks is the cause of motor abnormalities in tottering mice. This is in agreement with earlier studies that have shown that Purkinje cells are sufficient, and required, for the initiation of attacks in this mouse model (Campbell et al., 1999; Mark et al., 2011; Raike et al., 2013a), and extend them by revealing a tight correlation between the extent to which the activity of Purkinje cells is erratic with the severity of the motor abnormalities. Because a significant amount of sensory information converges on the cerebellum, one might consider the alternative hypothesis that the erratic activity of Purkinje cells in the tottering mice during the attacks simply reflects the abnormal sensory input caused by the signs. Three sets of observations make this unlikely and support the working hypothesis that the erratic activity of Purkinje cells causes the abnormal motor signs. The ...
Prolidase gene (PEPD) encodes prolidase enzyme, which is responsible for hydrolysis of dipeptides containing proline or hydroxyproline at their C-terminal end. Mutations in PEPD gene cause, in human, prolidase deficiency (PD), a rare autosomal recessive disorder. PD patients show reduced or absent prolidase activity and a broad spectrum of phenotypic traits including various degrees of mental retardation. This is the first report correlating PD and brain damages using as a model system prolidase deficient mice, the so called dark-like (dal) mutant mice. We focused our attention on dal postnatal brain development, revealing a panel of different morphological defects in the cerebral and cerebellar cortices, such as undulations of the cerebral cortex, cell rarefaction, defects in cerebellar cortex lobulation, and blood vessels overgrowth. These anomalies might be ascribed to altered angiogenic process and loss of pial basement membrane integrity. Further studies will be directed to find a ...

Purkinje cells in the mammalian cerebellum are remarkably homogeneous in shape and orientation, yet they exhibit regional differences in gene expression. Purkinje cells that express high levels of zebrin II (aldolase C) and the glutamate transporter EAAT4 cluster in parasagittal zones that receive input from distinct groups of climbing fibers (CFs); however, the physiological properties of CFs that target these molecularly distinct Purkinje cells have not been determined. Here we report that CFs that innervate Purkinje cells in zebrin II-immunoreactive (Z(+)) zones release more glutamate per action potential than CFs in Z(-) zones. CF terminals in Z(+) zones had larger pools of release-ready vesicles, exhibited enhanced multivesicular release, and produced larger synaptic glutamate transients. As a result, CF-mediated EPSCs in Purkinje cells decayed more slowly in Z(+) zones, which triggered longer-duration complex spikes containing a greater number of spikelets. The differences in the duration ...
The present study examined the spatial organization of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) immunopositive Purkinje cells in the cerebellum of rolling mouse Nagoya with reference to the distribution pattern of the cerebellar compartmentation antigen, heat shock protein 25 (HSP25). Whole-mount immunostaining revealed a striking pattern of parasagittal stripes of TH staining in the rolling mouse cerebellum but not in the control cerebellum. Although the TH stripes resembled the zebrin II stripes in the rolling cerebellum, these two distributions did not completely overlap. The TH stripes were present in the lobules VI and VII (central zone), the lobule X (nodular zone), and the paraflocculus, where zebrin II immunostaining was uniformly expressed. Double immunostaining revealed that TH stripes were aligned in an alternative fashion with HSP25 stripes within the caudal half of lobule VIb, lobules IXb and X, and paraflocculus. Some, but not all, TH stripes shared boundaries with HSP25 stripes. These results revealed
When cerebellar Purkinje cells are depolarized with a constant current pulse injected at the soma, complex spike discharge patterns are observed (Llinas and Sugimori 1980b). A computer model has been constructed to analyze how the Purkinje cell ionic conductance identified to date interact to produce the observed firing behavior. The kinetics of voltage-dependent conductance used in the model were significantly simpler than Hodgkin-Huxley kinetics, which have many parameters that must be experimentally determined. Our simplified scheme was able to reproduce the complex nonlinear responses found in real Purkinje cells. A similar approach could be used to study the wide variety of neurons found in different brain regions.. ...

Our group is interested in understanding the cellular basis of neural computation in the mammalian brain. We are focusing on how the properties of neuronal dendrites and neural circuits contribute to information processing in the intact brain. To address these issues, we are integrating approaches and techniques at different levels of brain function in microcircuits of the cerebellar cortex and cerebral cortex. We primarily work on cerebellar Purkinje cells and cortical layer 5 pyramidal cells, the principal neurons in their respective networks. Our group has been involved in developing a range of high-tech approaches for studying neural circuits, including two-photon imaging techniques, patch-clamp recordings from axons and dendrites, and recording from multiple synaptically connected cells. These techniques are being applied in parallel to in vitro and in vivo preparations in order to investigate cellular mechanisms while placing them in the context of network activity. Our experiments are ...

The relatively few well-defined cell types within the cerebellum and the stereotypical foliation pattern make the cerebellum particularly amenable to the study of morphogenesis in the central nervous system (CNS). The mammalian cerebellum consists of a central vermis and two lateral hemispheres, each with its own sets of fissures. The complexity of the foliation pattern varies between species of mammals, depending on the proprioceptive input to the cerebellum. For example, the cerebellar vermis of many inbred mouse strains consists of eight major lobules with few sublobules, whereas the rat vermis consists of ten lobules and contains more sublobules. Furthermore, some inbred strains of mice have one or two additional partial lobules corresponding to additional lobules in rat. Although the basic ten lobules present in the rat are conserved in human, each human cerebellar lobule is extensively subdivided into many sublobules. The conservation of morphology within and across species suggests that ...
