Cerebellum interneuron granule cellAxon terminalGlutamateparallel fibers to Purkinje cellsImmunochemical evidence of glutamate as neurotransmitter in the terminals of parallel fibers (Somogyi P et al, 1986426 ). Glutamate release from parallel fibers (of granule cells) activates AMPA, mGluR on Purkinje cells (Batchelor AM et al, 1994425 ) (Takahashi M et al, 1995424 )(Yoshimura Y et al, 1999223 ).
