Cerebellar pathology has been shown in patients with cerebellar ataxia and essential tremor. Changes in the electroencephalogram activities of the cerebellum correlate with the clinical findings in these patients. Therefore, these electrical features may serve as objective readouts to monitor disease progression. We plan to further investigate the pathomechanisms in mouse models by correlating in vivo cerebellar activities of individual neurons with behavior. Such understanding will help develop both pharmacological and electrophysiological therapies, which act through the modulation of the cerebellar activities.
