Cerebellum interneuron granule cellDistal equivalent dendriteNMDAfrom extrinsic and intrinsic mossy fibersPotentiation of intrinsic excitability was induced by relatively weaker inputs than those that induce potentiation of synaptic efficacy; NMDA receptors are involved in both aspects of potentiation (Armano S et al, 2000411 ). The NMDA responses of two types of feedforward excitatory interneurons in the granular layer, the granule cell and unipolar brush cell (UBC), were compared. A subset of granule cells receive influence from UBC via extrinsic mossy fibers (Billups D et al, 2002405 ) Silent synapses during development (Losi G et al, 2002413 ).
