Networks, synaptic regulations, and functions in the cerebellum

Neurons transmit the information through propagation of action potentials and synaptic transmissions. The information processing is affected by several factors, such as structures of networks and synapses, efficacies of synaptic transmission, or electrophysiological and molecular properties of neurons. We are interested in understanding the correlation between information processing and these factors, and investigate neuronal networks, synaptic regulations and their functions in the cerebellum, whose macro structures of networks are well organized.
