One cannot build theories of cerebellar function on shaky foundations: induction properties of long-term depression have to be taken into account.

Abstract - The theories of cerebellar function presented in this BBS special issue cannot be reconciled with the established induction properties of cerebellar LTD. At the same time, the authors presenting their research on cerebellar LTD do not appear very interested in function. System physiologists and cell biologists need to collaborate more if we are to make progress in understanding cerebellar function.
