5. Inhibitory Interneurons and Glial Cells in the Cerebellar Cortex

5-1. Introduction

The cerebellar cortex contains two types of inhibitory neurons in the molecular layer; basket and stellate cells. In physiological experiments, basket cells are not always distinguishable from stellate cells on the basis of their responses during recording; hence, they are often lumped together as “basket/stellate cells” or collectively called inhibitory interneurons in the molecular layer. The granular layer, on the other hand, contains large and small inhibitory neurons. Large neurons are the Golgi and Lugaro cells, whereas small neurons are “small Golgi” cells, “small-fusiform Lugaro” cells, and “small globular” neurons. The latter three types of neuron have ...
