Although the important roles of the granule cells in adult cerebellar function are well appreciated, how the formation of parallel fibers is regulated in the developing cerebellum remains largely unknown.

Cerebellar Signaling of Reward Expectation The cerebellum receives input from two pathways.

Defective cerebellar response to mitogenic Hedgehog signaling

During postnatal murine cerebellar development, granule cell precursors (GCP) near the surface of the cerebellum in the external germinal layer (EGL) proliferate, and their progeny migrate inward and differentiate to form the IGL (20). Purkinje cells mature and form a single cell layer at the interface of the IGL and the molecular layer.

Hedgehog signaling has a protective effect in glucocorticoid

Cerebellar development is initiated in the embryonic mamma-lian brain, but its major growth phase occurs in late gestation and continues through the neonatal period. Granule neurons are the most numerous cells in the cerebellum. During development,

DNA Binding Activities in Cerebellar Granule Cell Neurons

Granule cell neurons The cerebellum is the center of motor control and balance in the brain, and may be involved in some higher cognitive functions. In transgenic mouse models where cerebellar development is disrupted, the surviving animals typically have dysfunctional voluntary movement (Eisenman and Brothers, 1998).

Roles of Cbln1 in Non-Motor Functions of Mice

Cerebellin 1 (Cbln1) is expressed predominantly in cerebellar granule cells (Hirai et al., 2005). It is released from parallel fibers (PFs; axons of granule cells) and binds to its postsynaptic recep-tor, glutamate receptor delta2 (GluD2) (Matsuda et al., 2010). Cbln1 GluD2 signaling plays a crucial role at PF Purkinje cell
