Cerebellum -- Multiple Parallel Loops

(György Buzsáki -  Rhythms of the Brain, 364)



The cerebellum is organized as multiple parallel loops without interloop communication.

Inhibitory loops complement the mossy fiber—deep cerebellar excitatory loop.

The short inhibitory loop involves the climbing fiber—Purkinje cell—deep nucleus feedforward path,

The long inhibitory loop includes the mossy fiber—granule cell—Purkinje cell—deep nucleus path.
