Although they expected the activity in cerebellar granule cells would be related to planning and executing arm movements (in this case, while pushing levers), they found that some cells fired even when the mice were waiting for their rewards (sugar water).
Up to now, the mechanisms through which individual granule cells are assigned to specific memories were not understood.
These include cortical interneurons in the IZ/SVZ, (8) cerebellar granule cells in the external granule layer (9) and precerebellar neurons such as PN neurons, (10) neurons of the lateral reticular nucleus (LRN) (11) and facial motor neurons in the hindbrain.
Quantitative results obtained by unbiased stereological techniques showed that exposure of rats to noise (100 dB, 30 min, 3 times per day) during one week from postnatal day 15 to 21 significantly decreases the volume of granular layer together with decreased numerical density of granule cells in the cerebellum.
Granule cells relay the information they receive from neurons involved in memory and cognition back to the olfactory bulb.
2012) Decreased tonic inhibition in cerebellar granule cells causes motor dysfunction in a mouse model of Angelman syndrome.
Nandy (1981) observed that the Purkinje cells are more prone to age changes than the granule cells of the cerebellum regarding both lipofuscin formation and cell loss.
Immunohistochemical markers were used to identify the new cells which included excitatory granule cells, astrocytes, and a very small number of the interneurons.
In addition, there is a variable decrease in the number of granule cells (20) but basket and stellate cells are preserved.
The disease was confirmed when immunohistochemistry demonstrated preservation of Purkinje cells, and in situ PCR revealed selective depletion of cerebellar granule cells and JCV infection of granule cell neurons.
