Cerebrocerebellar interactions underlying the coordination of complex behaviour

To make precise movements, our big and small brain (cerebrum and cerebellum) constantly exchange electrical signals. Thus far, studies have only examined the big and small brain separately, or in relation to one body part. Therefore, we lack a comprehensive understanding of how we control simultaneous movements of multiple body parts. With a new freely moving system that we have developed, we aim to reveal how these two brain cortices work together during natural behaviour.


  • Electrophysiological recordings of single unite and local field potential in freely moving mice.
  • Quantification and correlation of the mouse movement in the 3D space with neuronal activity.
