The cerebellar model of neural grafting: structural integration and functional recovery.

Author information

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis 46202-5120, USA.


A synopsis is presented of the recent history of cerebellar tissue transplantation over the past 25 years. The properties of growth and differentiation of cerebellar grafts placed intraocularly or intracranially are reviewed, as well as the interaction of heterotopic and orthotopic grafts with the host brain. Particular emphasis is placed on the use of ataxic mouse mutants as recipients of donor cerebellar tissue for the correction of their structural deficits and the functional recovery of behavioural responses.
