The cerebellum is involved in sensorimotor control as well as in time processing during cognitive tasks. Depending on input-output relationships, major roles of the cerebellar cortex have been associated to the prediction of an expected sensory feedback during a voluntary action or locomotor adaptation in different motor context. A shared property of these processings is that microcircuits should integrate ongoing contextual sensory information in order to provide an appropriate calculation that can be used either by the cerebral cortex or the spinal cord. My group is currently working on how cerebellar microcircuits encode sensorimotor information in different locomotor context. By combining behavioral experiments with in vitro electrophysiological recordings and glutamate uncaging we established connectivity maps of the cerebellar cortex in different behavioral conditions. I will describe how they relate to locomotor adaptation and discuss how our results may shed light on cerebellar computation.
