Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Gao et al. (2016) report on a little-studied feedback pathway from the cerebellar nuclei back to the cerebellar cortex. They find that it contributes to associative conditioning and execution of learned movements, highlighting a role for local feedback loops in the brain.
