This volume considers the current techniques used by experts to study and measure cerebellar function. The chapters in this book cover topics such as stem cell-based techniques; conditional genetics approaches in model systems; neuronal recordings conducted in vitro and in vivo; and an ever-growing list of behavioral paradigms. This book also provides readers with a guide for how to use tools such as iPSCs and how to address questions using a range of approaches in animal model systems including mouse, rat, zebrafish, and non-human primate. In the Neuromethods series style, the chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.
Cutting-edge and authoritative, Measuring Cerebellar Function is a valuable resource for cerebellar enthusiasts and other scientists interested in learning more about the cerebellum and the technological advances that are currently being employed to unlock brain function and understand animal behavior.
