Phosphatase Activity Controls the Ups and Downs of Cerebellar Learning.
Neuron. 2010 Aug 26;67(4):525-526
Authors: Carey MR, Regehr WG
Investigations of the cellular substrate for cerebellar learning have focused largely on a single form of plasticity, kinase-dependent long-term depression (LTD). In this issue of Neuron, Schonewille et al. provide evidence that calcineurin, a protein phosphatase required for long-term potentiation (LTP) and other cellular processes, may be just as important.
