Tadashi Yamazaki (NIJC, The University of Electro-Communications) and his colleagues reported a new computational model of cerebellovestibular learning PNAS. Their study demonstrated that the learning with synaptic plasticities in multiple locations can closely reproduce learning behavior of mice. The assumption of multiple synaptic plasticity is based on the experimental studies by M. Ito and S.Nagao at RIKEN.   The source code of the model is open in the cerebellar platform.
