Cerebellar afferents from neurons in the extraocular motor nuclei: a fluorescent retrograde double-labeling study in the sheep. (1/323)

The fluorescent retrograde double labeling technique has been used to identify within the extraocular motor nuclei of the sheep the neurons projecting to the cerebellum and to provide evidence whether they are motor neurons sending collaterals to the cerebellum or a separate population of neurons. The study was performed on eight sheep. The fluorescent tracers used were Fast Blue and the diamidino yellow dihydrochloride. In one and the same animal a fluorescent tracer was injected into the extraocular muscles (EOMs) and the other into bilateral points of the vermal folia II-V and paramedian lobule, or into the vermal folia VI, VIIA and VIIB, or into the underlying fastigial nuclei. Within the oculomotor, trochlear, and abducens nuclei, almost all of the motor neurons were labeled by the tracer injected into the EOMs and only a few cells were fluorescent for the tracer infiltrated into the cerebellum. These latter labelings were present bilaterally, and their number and distribution did not show apparent differences after injecting the paramedian lobule and the vermal folia or the fastigial nucleus. Along the rostrocaudal extent of the oculomotor and trochlear nuclei, the neurons projecting to the cerebellum were intermingled with the motor neurons located in the nuclear area facing the medial longitudinal fasciculus. In the abducens nucleus they were restricted to the caudal pole of the nucleus, which is located ventrolaterally to the genu of the facial nerve. Double-labeled neurons were never found. The absence of double-labeled cells, in spite of the efficiency of the tracer infiltration into the EOMs and into the cerebellum, demonstrates that the cerebellar projections from the extraocular motor nuclei are not collaterals of the motor neurons, but axons of a separate population of neurons.  (+info)

Role of the Botzinger complex in fastigial nucleus-mediated respiratory responses. (2/323)

We have reported that the phrenic neurogram (PN) is modulated by stimulation of the fastigial nucleus (FN) of the cerebellum. The present study was undertaken to search for brainstem site(s) involved in the FN efferent pathway to modulate phrenic nerve activities. Experiments were performed on 35 anesthetized, paralyzed, and ventilated cats, using the PN as the index of the respiratory motor output. Results showed that bilateral electrolytic lesions of the red nucleus (RN), the paramedian reticular nucleus (PRN), or the pontine respiratory group (PRG) had little effect on the ability of FN stimulation to modulate the respiratory output. However, the modulation was abolished by bilateral electrolytic lesions of the Botzinger complex (BotC). Further studies showed that bilateral chemical inactivation of BotC neurons produced by topical microinjection of kainic acid or cobalt chloride failed to abolish the modulation. We concluded that fibers of passage, not synapses or cell bodies in the BotC, were involved in the modulatory effect of FN stimulation on the PN. The RN, PRN, and PRG appear not to be important in the neural circuitry responsible for the FN modulation of the phrenic activity.  (+info)

Perineuronal nets of proteoglycans in the adult mouse brain, with special reference to their reactions to Gomori's ammoniacal silver and Ehrlich's methylene blue. (3/323)

As our previous studies have indicated, many subsets of neurons in the vertebrate brain possess a sulfated proteoglycan surface coat which reacts to cationic iron colloid and aldehyde fuchsin. The present study demonstrated that this surface coat is supravitally stained with Ehrlich's methylene blue, and doubly with this blue and aldehyde fuchsin, a finding suggesting its being identical to Cajal's superficial reticulum (red superficial) and to Golgi's reticular coating (revetement reticulare). The perineuronal surface coat was further stained with Gomori's ammoniacal silver, and doubly with this silver and cationic iron colloid. These neurons with such a proteoglycan surface coat usually expressed cell surface glycoproteins which were labeled with lectin Wisteria floribunda agglutinin. Hyaluronidase digestion did not interfere with this lectin labeling of the glycoproteins, methylene blue and Gomori's ammoniacal silver staining of the surface coat, while it erased the cationic iron colloid and aldehyde fuchsin staining of the surface coat. These findings suggest that the perineuronal proteoglycan surface coat is associated with some additional molecules which are resistant to hyaluronidase digestion and stainable with methylene blue and Gomori's ammoniacal silver. The possibility is suggested that these molecules might represent "ligand proteoglycans" connecting the perineuronal proteoglycans and cell surface glycoproteins.  (+info)

Intrinsic neurons of fastigial nucleus mediate neurogenic neuroprotection against excitotoxic and ischemic neuronal injury in rat. (4/323)

Electrical stimulation of the cerebellar fastigial nucleus (FN) elevates regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and arterial pressure (AP) and provides long-lasting protection against focal and global ischemic infarctions. We investigated which neuronal element in FN, perikarya or axons, mediates this central neurogenic neuroprotection and whether it also protects against excitotoxicity. In anesthetized rats, the FN was stimulated for 1 hr, and ibotenic acid (IBO) was microinjected unilaterally into the striatum. In unstimulated controls, the excitotoxic lesions averaged approximately 40 mm3. Stimulation of FN, but not dentate nucleus (DN), significantly reduced lesion volumes up to 80% when IBO was injected 15 min, 72 hr, or 10 d, but not 30 d, thereafter. In other rats, intrinsic neurons of FN or DN were destroyed by pretreatment with IBO. Five days later, the FN was stimulated, and 72 hr later, IBO was microinjected into the striatum. Lesions of FN, but not DN, abolished neuroprotection but not the elevations of rCBF and AP elicited from FN stimulation. Excitotoxic lesions of FN, but not DN, also abolished the 37% reduction in focal ischemic infarctions produced by middle cerebral artery occlusion. Excitation of intrinsic FN neurons provides long-lasting, substantial, and reversible protection of central neurons from excitotoxicity, as well as focal ischemia, whereas axons in the nucleus, probably collaterals of ramified brainstem neurons, mediate the elevations in rCBF, which do not contribute to neuroprotection. Long-lived protection against a range of injuries is an unrecognized function of FN neurons transmitted over pathways distinct from those regulating rCBF.  (+info)

Fastigial nucleus activity during different frequencies and orientations of vertical vestibular stimulation in the monkey. (5/323)

Neurons in the rostral part of the fastigial nucleus (FN) respond to vestibular stimulation but are not related to eye movements. To understand the precise role of these vestibular-only neurons in the central processing of vestibular signals, unit activity in the FN of alert monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was recorded. To induce vestibular stimulation, the monkey was rotated sinusoidally around an earth-fixed horizontal axis at stimulus frequencies between 0.06 (+/-15 degrees) and 1.4 Hz (+/-7.5 degrees). During stimulation head orientation was changed continuously, allowing for roll, pitch, and intermediate planes of orientation. At a frequency of 0.6 Hz, 59% of the neurons had an optimal response orientation (ORO) and a null response (i.e., no modulation) 90 degrees apart. The phase of neuronal response was constant except for a steep shift of 180 degrees around the null response. This group I response is compatible with a semicircular canal input, canal convergence, or a single otolith input. Several other features indicated more complex responses, including spatiotemporal convergence (STC). 1) For 35% of the responses at 0.6 Hz, phase changes were gradual with different orientations. Fifteen percent of these had a null response (group II), and 20% showed only a minimal response but no null response (group III). The remaining responses (6%), classified as group IV, were characterized by a constant sensitivity at different orientations in most instances. 2) For the vast majority of neurons, the stimulus frequency determined the response group, i.e., an individual neuron could show a group I response at one frequency and a group II (III or IV) response at another frequency. 3) ORO changed with frequency by >45 degrees for 44% of the neurons. 4) Although phase changes at different frequencies were close to head velocity (+/-45 degrees ) or head position (+/-45 degrees ) for most neurons, they exceeded 90 degrees for 29% of the neurons between 0.1 and 1.0 Hz. In most cases, this was a phase advance. The change in sensitivity with change in frequency showed a similar pattern for all neurons; the average sensitivity increased from 1.24 imp. s-1. deg-1 at 0.1 Hz to 2.97 imp. s-1. deg-1 at 1.0 Hz. These data demonstrate that only an analysis based on measurements at different frequencies and orientations reveals a number of complex features. They moreover suggest that for the vast majority of neurons several sources of canal and otolith information interact at this central stage of vestibular information processing.  (+info)

Simulations of cerebellar motor learning: computational analysis of plasticity at the mossy fiber to deep nucleus synapse. (6/323)

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)

Lateral cerebellar hemispheres actively support sensory acquisition and discrimination rather than motor control. (7/323)

This study examined a new hypothesis proposing that the lateral cerebellum is not activated by motor control per se, as widely assumed, but is engaged during the acquisition and discrimination of tactile sensory information. This proposal derives from neurobiological studies of these regions of the rat cerebellum. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lateral cerebellar output nucleus (dentate) of humans during passive and active sensory tasks confirmed four a priori implications of this hypothesis. Dentate nuclei responded to cutaneous stimuli, even when there were no accompanying overt finger movements. Finger movements not associated with tactile sensory discrimination produced no dentate activation. Sensory discrimination with the fingers induced an increase in dentate activation, with or without finger movements. Finally, dentate activity was greatest when there was the most opportunity to modulate the acquisition of the sensory tactile data: when the discrimination involved the active repositioning of tactile sensory surface of the fingers. Furthermore, activity in cerebellar cortex was strongly correlated with observed dentate activity. This distinct four-way pattern of effects strongly challenges other cerebellar theories. However, contrary to appearances, neither our hypothesis nor findings conflict with behavioral effects of cerebellar damage, neurophysiological data on animals performing motor tasks, or cerebellar contribution to nonmotor, perceptual, and cognitive tasks.  (+info)

Single-unit evidence for eye-blink conditioning in cerebellar cortex is altered, but not eliminated, by interpositus nucleus lesions. (8/323)

Many theories of motor learning explain learning-related changes in motor behavior in terms of plasticity in the cerebellar cortex. Empirical evidence, however, does not always appear to be consistent with such formulations. It is the anterior cerebellar interpositus nucleus (aINP) that seems to be essential for acquisition and retention of conditioned eye-blink responses under most circumstances and it has been therefore suggested that the aINP is the critical site of learning-related plasticity during eye-blink conditioning. Supporting this conclusion are studies demonstrating that multiple-unit conditioning-related neural activity patterns observed in many brain regions disappear after aINP lesion. The possibility that the cerebellar cortex may be involved in forming these patterns has not been assessed adequately, however. In the current study, trained rabbits received kainic acid lesions of the INP. After recovery, the animals underwent additional sessions of conditioning during which single-unit activity was recorded from the cerebellar cortex. Our results suggest that the aINP is not the sole site of plasticity during eye-blink conditioning, as a subset of the neurons recorded from lesioned animals demonstrated conditioning-related firing patterns. The lesions did change the character of these firing patterns from those observed in saline controls, however, in ways that can be generally described as a loss of organization. The normal tendency for the population of cortical cells to change firing rate together, for instance, was significantly less noticeable in lesioned animals. These results suggest that the aINP may be involved in the production of important features of conditioned responding, such as system timing function, therefore suggesting the need for more models that incorporate aINP and brain stem feedback as integral to the production of organized neural and behavioral responses.  (+info)

PY - 2010/1/13. Y1 - 2010/1/13. N2 - To understand the roles of the vestibular system in perceptual detection and discrimination of self-motion, it is critical to account for response variability in computing the sensitivity of vestibular neurons. Here we study responses of neurons with no eye movement sensitivity in the vestibular (VN) and rostral fastigial nuclei (FN) using high-frequency (2 Hz) oscillatory translational motion stimuli. The axis of translation (i.e., heading) varied slowly (1° /s) in the horizontal plane as the animal was translated back and forth. Signal detection theory was used to compute the threshold sensitivity of VN/FN neurons for discriminating small variations in heading around all possible directions of translation. Across the population, minimum heading discrimination ...

The projections of the lateral reticular nucleus (LRN) to the cerebellar nuclei were studied using the retrograde axonal transport of tetramethyl rhodamine dextran amine (10% solution in 0.01 M neutral phosphate buffer) in 19 adult Wistar strain rats. The cerebellar nuclei receive topographically organized projections from the LRN. The projections are bilateral with an ipsilateral predominance and they are symmetrical. The contralateral component is progressively larger for projections to the nuclei interpositalis, to the nucleus lateralis and to the nucleus medialis. The projections to the various cerebellar nuclei arise from rostrocaudally oriented columns of neurons located in different (partly overlapping) areas of the magnocellular division of the LRN. The nucleus lateralis receives terminals from the dorsomedial area (mainly from the rostral level of the LRN), the nuclei interpositalis from the dorsolateral area (mainly from the central level) and the nucleus medialis from the ...

These rules for inducing potentiation are distinct from classical long-term potentiation (LTP) in the hippocampal CA1 region, in which EPSCs are potentiated by large increases in postsynaptic Ca resulting from a temporal coincidence, on a scale of a few milliseconds, of synaptic excitation and postsynaptic spiking (Markram et al., 1997; Bi and Poo, 1998). The converse occurs at parallel fiber synapses onto Purkinje neurons, where small elevations of Ca promote potentiation (Coesmans et al., 2004; Belmeguenai and Hansel, 2005; Jörntell and Hansel, 2006). In cerebellar nuclear neurons, at least two factors may make such threshold or inverse-threshold rules inappropriate. First, spontaneous firing raises Ca levels in the relatively short dendrites of nuclear cells, near excitatory synapses. Thus, Ca-dependent induction of plasticity of EPSCs must occur against a high, probably fluctuating, background Ca level, which is expected to add noise to a threshold-based induction signal. Second, ...
The input to the cerebellum has long been known to originate from widespread regions of the cerebral cortex including the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes. The output of the cerebellum, however, was thought to project mainly to the primary motor cortex. Recent anatomical observations have challenged this view. It is now apparent that cerebellar output goes to multiple cortical areas, including not only the primary motor cortex, but also areas of premotor and prefrontal cortex. In fact, there is growing evidence that each of the areas of cerebral cortex that project to the cerebellum is also the target of cerebellar output. The cerebellar output to individual cortical areas originates from distinct clusters of neurons in the deep nuclei which we have termed `output channels. The individual output channels to the cortical areas we have examined display little or no overlap. Physiological recordings in awake trained primates indicate that neurons in different output channels appear to be involved in

We generated transgenic (Thy1alpha6) mice in which the GABA(A) receptor alpha6 subunit, whose expression is usually confined to granule cells of cerebellum and cochlear nuclei, is ectopically expressed under the control of the pan-neuronal Thy-1.2 promoter. Strong Thy1alpha6 subunit expression occurs, for example, in deep cerebellar nuclei, layer V iscocortical and hippocampal pyramidal cells and dentate granule cells. Ligand binding and protein biochemistry show that most forebrain alpha6 subunits assemble as alpha6betagamma2-type receptors, and some as alpha1alpha6betagamma2 and alpha3alpha6betagamma2 receptors. Electron microscopic immunogold labeling shows that most Thy1-derived alpha6 immunoreactivity is in the extrasynaptic plasma membrane of dendrites and spines in both layer V isocortical and CA1pyramidal cells. Synaptic immunolabeling is rare. Consistent with the alpha6 subunits extrasynaptic localization, Thy1alpha6 CA1 pyramidal neurons have a five-fold increased tonic GABA(A) receptor

FNS may offer a new approach to neuroprotection against cerebral ischemia. FNS has been showed to promote nerve tissue repair, reconstruction, neurological rehabilitation and improve stroke-related complication [9, 10]. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression during cerebral ischemia after FNS are still not completely understood. Recently, increasing attention has been focused on miRNAs, which are promising targets in the molecular mechanisms of gene regulation, pathology, and drug actions [24, 25]. To date, the neural functional relevance of such a central neural neuroprotective network induced by FNS have yet to be revealed. Our study presented the first profile of miRNA expression in the ischemic cortex after 1 h of FNS. The differentially expressed miRNAs may participate in neuroprotection induced by FNS, and provides further insights into miRNAs functions in ischemic injury.. In the present study, we used Solexa sequencing technology on small RNA libraries ...
Youre looking for the brains response to a particular thing, but if you do MEG on a resting person, you dont get zero - you get all sorts of stuff - because theyre thinking about their cat and each person has a different resting state, said Chapman.. The first problem the collaborative team set to work on was characterising the brains response to surprise. The research was supported by GlaxoSmithKline, the MRC and by an EPSRC cross disciplinary feasibility account. Although not prescriptive, surprise is considered one of the six universal emotional responses (alongside anger, fear, disgust, happiness and sadness) and there are robust experimental methods to isolate and study it.. They used something called the mismatch-negativity (MMN) paradigm. While in an MEG scanner, 10 healthy volunteers listened to a series of beeps, some of which were regular and repetitive, and some of which were different and out of sequence..

Austrian Development Service HorizonT3000, Harare, Zimbabwe.. The root bark of the Iboga shrub (Tabernanthe iboga) is used in Gabon, Africa, to induce a near-death experience for spiritual and psychological purposes. The pharmacology of ibogaine, a psychoactive indole alkaloid extracted from the bark, has been investigated extensively because of its putative qualities to treat addiction. This review of these studies and neuroscientific approaches to the near-death experience compared with field studies of traditional African rituals has generated new insights into the neurological correlates and the psychological effects and after-effects of the near-death experience. Ibogaine stimulates the cerebellar fastigial nucleus in the same manner as ischemia and leads to a medium-term protection of the brain against glutamate-induced neurotoxicity. At the same time, it induces changes in the autonomic nervous and the cardiovascular systems, which aid in the survival of ischemia: iboga intake and ...
Mutations in the neuron-specific α3 isoform of the Na+/K+-ATPase are found in patients suffering from Rapid onset Dystonia Parkinsonism and Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood, two closely related movement disorders. We show that mice harboring a heterozygous hot spot disease mutation, D801Y (α3+/D801Y), suffer abrupt hypothermia-induced dystonia identified by electromyographic recordings. Single-neuron in vivo recordings in awake α3+/D801Y mice revealed irregular firing of Purkinje cells and their synaptic targets, the deep cerebellar nuclei neurons, which was further exacerbated during dystonia and evolved into abnormal high-frequency burst-like firing. Biophysically, we show that the D-to-Y mutation abolished pump-mediated Na+/K+ exchange, but allowed the pumps to bind Na+ and become phosphorylated. These findings implicate aberrant cerebellar activity in α3 isoform-related dystonia and add to the functional understanding of the scarce and severe mutations in the α3 isoform Na+/K+-ATPase.
Many studies have documented the relationship between adverse early experience and the development of psychiatric disorders. Understanding the mental health consequences of perinatal stressors is crucial to preventative treatment. Neonatal maternal separation in the rat is a good model system for assessing the effects of adverse early experience, and eyeblink conditioning is a good model for studying the relationship between neonatal stress and adult learning and memory. Previously, I showed that daily neonatal maternal separation (1h/day on postnatal days 2-14) increases plasma corticosterone levels during the first and second postnatal week. Further, I showed that neonatal maternal separation impairs adult eyeblink conditioning and produces a correlated increase in glucocorticoid receptor expression in the posterior interpositus nucleus of the cerebellum. My dissertation research is focused on characterizing the role of glucocorticoids in this effect. I measured cerebellar glucocorticoid ...
To minimize variance, recordings were made from large cells in the interpositus and the medial portion of the lateral nucleus, which most likely include the large glutamatergic projection neurons (Uusisaari et al., 2007). Most of these cells had somatic diameters of 15-20 μm. The selection criteria were identical to those in the study by Zheng and Raman (2009). Although bursting was not assessed in the present work, the majority of cells in that study produced rebound bursts in response to strong hyperpolarizing current injection to potentials less than −90 mV, but only prolonged rebound firing in response to IPSP trains. Patch pipettes (3-5 MΩ) were pulled from borosilicate glass on a Sutter Instruments P97 puller. Voltage-clamp recordings were made with an Axopatch 200B amplifier and current-clamp recordings with an Axoclamp 2B amplifier, and data were acquired with pClamp acquisition software (Molecular Devices). Pipettes were filled with an intracellular solution composed of the ...
The hereditary cerebellar ataxias include diverse neurodegenerative disorders. Hereditary ataxias can be divided into autosomal dominant ataxias (ADCAs), autosomal recessive ataxias (ARCAs), X-linked, and mitochondrial ataxias on the basis of mode of inheritance. The key feature in all these disorders is ataxia typically characterised by poor balance, hand incoordination, postural or kinetic tremor, dysarthria and dysphagia.. To date no treatment has been shown to slow progression of the disease and symptomatic therapies are limited to few options that are partially effective.. Purkinje cells project inhibitory signals to the deep cerebellar nuclei(DCN) which have a critical role in cerebellar function and motor performance. DCN neurons fire spontaneously in the absence of synaptic input from Purkinje neurons and modulation of the DCN response by Purkinje input is believed to be responsible for coordination of movement, while uncontrolled spontaneous firing of DCN neurons may underlay cerebellar ...

We wish to comment on the August 2015 article of Adin et al1 in the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR) entitled Hyperintense Dentate Nuclei on T1-Weighted MRI: Relation to Repeat Gadolinium Administration. The authors reported the relationship between the hyperintense dentate nucleus on unenhanced T1WI and past gadolinium based-contrast agent (GBCA) administration. This relationship was first reported by our group on December 7, 2013.2 Since then, several important reports have been published, and knowledge regarding gadolinium deposition has increased remarkably.. Our group3 and Radbruch et al4 evaluated the difference in the signal change between patients repeatedly administered linear GBCA and macrocyclic GBCA. A change in the signal intensity of the dentate nucleus was observed in the former, but not in the latter. McDonald et al5 and our group6 evaluated the brain tissue from postmortem specimens, and gadolinium deposition was verified from the brain tissue.7 Robert et al8 injected ...
If you were to understand the exact workings of each and every neuron in the cerebellum, you would certainly receive the Nobel Prize right away. As with all brain-related control systems, we need to zoom out and look at a slightly higher level of abstraction. The cerebellum is home to two special types of neurons, namely the Purkinje cells and the deep cerebellar nuclear cells, which are essentially our sensors in the control system sense and are fed with sensory information via mossy fibers and climbing fibers. Mossy fibers mostly transmit the information about the desired output, whilst climbing fibers are specialized to transfer sensory information about the current state of the system as well as already processed error signals. All this information is processed mainly by the Purkinje and deep cerebellar nuclear cells, whose activation patterns are characteristic of different types of movement. If we consider just a simple hand movement, it turns out that the firing patterns of these cells ...

Dentate nucleus is the most lateral and largest among the four nuclei of cerebellum. It is most prominent in higher animals, specially in human brain. Phylogenetically it is the latest in evolution and obviously related to neocerebellum. Dentate nucleus, on section, looks like a folded bag with its opening (concavity) facing medially. From the concave side emerge efferent fibers from the nucleus. Efferent fibers leave cerebellum through superior cerebellar peduncle ...

AU - Simmons, Patricia S.. AU - Moyer, Thomas P.. AU - Wilson, David M.. AU - Smith, Lynwood H.. PY - 1993/8. Y1 - 1993/8. N2 - To determine the range of normal values, we studied urinary excretion of oxalate and glycolate prospectively and longitudinally in a cohort of 30 healthy term infants. Random urine samples were obtained at 2 days, 2 weeks, and 2, 4, 6, and 9 months of age. The results had a log-normal distribution. The mean oxalate/cretinine ratio, as determined by the oxalate oxidasee method, was 0.08 (in milligrams of oxalate to milligrams of creatinine) with a normalized range of 0.02 to 0.31. The mean ratio when oxalates were measured by using the Olthuis assay was 0.13 (range 0.03 to 0.53). The mean glycolate/creatinine ratio was 0.07 (range 0.02 to 0.26). These values did not correlate with ...
In well-trained animals, infusion of the GABA-B agonist baclofen into the cerebellar interpositus nucleus and overlying cortex abolished the conditioned response (CR) with no effect on the unconditioned response (UR) with doses at or above 5.0 mM. Infusion of the GABA-B antagonist CGP 5584-5A alone had no effect on the CR or UR. However, administration of 5 mM baclofen soon after infusion of CGP 5584-5A (15 min) resulted in no reduction of percent CR and only partial reduction of CR amplitude. Naive animals given interpositus infusions of baclofen during training showed no learning, yet learned normally in postinfusion training. The distribution of (radiolabelled) baclofen was localized and remained within the cerebellum. The results presented here are consistent with a growing body of literature supporting the hypothesis that the memory trace for eyeblink conditioning is formed and stored in the cerebellum and may involve GABAergic mechanisms.
The idea that memory is encoded by means of synaptic growth is not new. However, this idea has been difficult to demonstrate in the mammalian brain because of both the complexity of mammalian behavior and the neural circuitry by which it is supported. Here we examine how eyeblink classical conditioning affects synapse number within the cerebellum; the brain region essential for long-term retention of the conditioned response. Results showed eyeblink-conditioned rats to have significantly more synapses per neuron within the cerebellar interpositus nucleus than both explicitly unpaired and untrained controls. Further analysis showed that the increase was caused by the addition of excitatory rather than inhibitory synapses. Thus, development of the conditioned eyeblink response is associated with a strengthening of inputs from precerebellar nuclei rather than from cerebellar cortex. These results demonstrate that the modifications of specific neural pathways by means of synaptogenesis contributes ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cerebellar outflow lesions. T2 - A comparison of movement deficits resulting from lesions at the levels of the cerebellum and thalamus. AU - Bastian, A. J.. AU - Thach, W. T.. PY - 1995/12. Y1 - 1995/12. N2 - Previous work has shown that lesions in the lateral cerebellum involving the dentate nucleus impair both reaching and pinching movements in humans and monkeys. This study addressed the question of whether disruption of the cerebellar‐thalamo‐cortical pathway at the level of the thalamus would produce behavioral deficits similar to those seen after dentate damage. We compared the performance of both reaching and pinching movements in patients with lateral cerebellar lesions and in patients with discrete lesions of the ventrolateral thalamus. The patients with thalamic lesions had minimal or no sensory loss and no corticospinal signs, suggesting that the abnormal movements were due to disruption of the cerebellar projection to the thalamus. We found that lesions of the ...
The mammalian cerebellum consists of a superficial cortex and centrally located output nuclei, which together with brainstem nuclei are organized in a modular fashion. Regardless of the function, these cerebellar modules consist of the same cell types, and their connectivity has been unraveled to some detail using electrical stimulation experiments. ... read more To unravel the highest level of detail, cell-specific stimulation experiments are warranted, which cannot be accomplished using electrical stimulation. To reach this unprecedented level of specificity, optogenetic applications are now being implemented in cerebellar studies. Due to the extensive knowledge about cell-specific markers in both the cerebellar cortex and the cerebellar nuclei, optogenetics can be applied cell specifically. Ideally the anatomical and electrophysiological characteristics of the cerebellum can be utilized for designing future optogenetic studies. In this chapter we review the opportunities and pitfalls for ...
The cerebellum has been considered only as a classical subcortical center for motor control. However, accumulating experimental and clinical evidences have revealed that the cerebellum also plays an important role in cognition, for instance, in learning and memory, as well as in emotional behavior and in nonsomatic activities, such as visceral and immunological responses. Although it is not yet clear through which pathways such cerebellar nonsomatic functions are mediated, the direct bidirectional connections between the cerebellum and the hypothalamus, a high autonomic center, have recently been demonstrated in a series of neuroanatomical investigations on a variety of mammals and indicated to be potential pathways underlying the cerebellar autonomic modulation. The direct hypothalamocerebellar projections originate from the widespread hypothalamic nuclei/areas and terminate in both the cerebellar cortex as multilayered fibers and the cerebellar nuclei. Immunohistochemistry studies have offered ...

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 ...
