Abstract

During postnatal cerebellar development, Purkinje cells form the most elaborate dendritic trees among neurons in the brain, which have been of great interest to many investigators. This article overviews various examples of cellular and molecular mechanisms of formation of Purkinje cell dendrites as well as the methodological aspects of investigating those mechanisms.
