    Coding of stimulus strength via analog calcium signals in Purkinje cell dendrites of awake mice

    Farzaneh Najafi et al.
    Sensory-driven calcium spikes in Purkinje cells are not binary; instead, they are graded and can provide information about the strength of a periocular airpuff stimulus known to drive learning.

    Cerebellar nuclei excitatory neurons regulate developmental scaling of presynaptic Purkinje cell number and organ growth

    Ryan T Willett et al.
    The first born excitatory cerebellar nuclei neurons influence the survival of their Purkinje cell partners which stimulate the expansion of granule cells and interneurons to produce functional local circuits.

    Frequency-dependent mobilization of heterogeneous pools of synaptic vesicles shapes presynaptic plasticity

    Frédéric Doussau et al.
    The mobilization or silencing of two heterogeneous pools of synaptic vesicles via different frequencies probably enables granule cell to Purkinje cell synapses to better discriminate between the high-rate code of sensory information and background noise.

    Occurrence of long-term depression in the cerebellar flocculus during adaptation of optokinetic response

    Takuma Inoshita, Tomoo Hirano
    Motor training decreased the unit synaptic response and suppressed induction of long-term depression at parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapses in the cerebellum, supporting involvement of long-term depression in motor learning.

    The cerebellum linearly encodes whisker position during voluntary movement

    Susu Chen et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje cells represent movements via bidirectional linear changes in spike rate, and activity from single cells is sufficient to reconstruct kinematic changes during bouts of free whisking.

    Complex spike synchrony dependent modulation of rat deep cerebellar nuclear activity

    Tianyu Tang et al.
    The importance of synchronous Purkinje cell complex spikes for controlling cerebellar output was investigated by simultaneously recording from cerebellar nuclear cells and arrays of Purkinje cells that synapse onto them.

    Differential 3’ processing of specific transcripts expands regulatory and protein diversity across neuronal cell types

    Saša Jereb et al.
    Differential expression of 3'UTR isoforms expands regulatory and protein diversity in cerebellar Purkinje and granule cells and during granule cell development.

    Age-dependent dormant resident progenitors are stimulated by injury to regenerate Purkinje neurons

    N Sumru Bayin et al.
    Injury at birth induces immature neurons to divide and regenerate cerebellar Purkinje cells in a time-dependent manner.

    Light-at-night exposure affects brain development through pineal allopregnanolone-dependent mechanisms

    Shogo Haraguchi et al.
    Diurnal variation loss of pineal allopregnanolone synthesis by light-at-night induces pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) reduction and transcriptional PACAP repression in the cerebellum, with subsequent Purkinje cell death.

    Cerebellar modules operate at different frequencies

    Haibo Zhou et al.
    Zebrin-positive cerebellar Purkinje cells fire at lower frequencies than zebrin-negative cells, indicating that cerebellar circuits are not physiologically homogeneous.
