Sensorimotor Integration and Amplification of Reflexive Whisking by Well-Timed Spiking in the Cerebellar Corticonuclear Circuit


Brown and Raman find that, during puff-evoked reflexive whisking in mice, Purkinje cells transmit motor commands arising in the brainstem. Sensory input dictates the timing of Purkinje and CbN cell spikes, such that transiently elevated cerebellar output amplifies reflexive whisking.
