This unit describes techniques for the preparation of mouse cerebellar slices and electrophysiological recording from neurons in the slice. The cerebellum provides a model of motor learning that can be correlated with alterations in synaptic function. In addition, the architecture and well-defined synaptic pathways in the cerebellar slice make this preparation a useful model for exploring general principles of synaptic transmission.
