The innermost layer of the cerebellar cortex was the granular layer which was densely packed with granule cells and few Golgi cells, as the ration was one Golgi cell to every several hundred granule cells.
Acute ethanol exposure inhibits silencing of cerebellar Golgi cell firing induced by granule cell axon input.
As the Golgi cell can receive an excitatory input from the burst stimulation of the PFbeam, it could therefore exert plasticityat the level of the granular layer.
