The olivocerebellar system is one of the most conserved in the vertebrate brain, being present in all forms studied so far. It comprises a set of bilaterally symmetrical inferior olivary nuclei (IO), ventrally located in the bulbar brainstem, and the overlaying cerebellum. This chapter discusses the electrophysiology of the olivocerebellar system and implications concerning the role of the olivocerebellar system in motor control.
