Abstract

Dendritic spines in glomeruli of the inferior olive are coupled by gap junctions and receive both inhibitory and excitatory inputs. In this issue of Neuron, Lefler et al. (2014), Mathy et al. (2014), and Turecek et al. (2014) provide new insight into how these inputs modulate electrical coupling and oscillatory activity.
