Brown and Raman Publish Study in Neuron

August 8, 2018
In the study, "Sensorimotor Integration and Amplification of Reflexive Whisking by Well-Timed Spiking in the Cerebellar Corticonuclear Circuit,"  published in Neuron, Spencer Brown and Indira Raman investigate cerebellar signals that contribute to whisker movements in mice. Brainstem motor commands are sent to Purkinje cells, which inhibit cerebellar output neurons, but brief sensory input produces precisely timed Purkinje cell spiking that alternates with rapid firing in the cerebellar nuclei, increasing cerebellar output and amplifying sensory-evoked reflexive whisker movements.
