Cerebellum basket cell

Name: Cerebellum basket cell
Description: Intrinsic cell residing in the inner third of the molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex. Axons extend laterally, transverse to the folium, and densely innervate the somata of Purkinje neurons. Axon collaterals of the basket cell axon form the specialized terminal plexus, the "pinceau", around the Purkinje cell axon initial segment. Llinas, Walton and Lang. In: The Synaptic Organization of the Brain. 5th ed. 2004.
Synonym(s): Cerebellar basket cell
Has role: Intrinsic neuron role
Super-category: Neuron
*Id: sao666951243
Defining criteria: The axon terminals form a "pinceau" around the Purkinje cell body and axonal initial segment

*Neurolex imports many terms from existing community ontologies, e.g., the Gene Ontology. We try to re-use the original identifier when possible and often import content from the original ontology. However, Neurolex is a dynamic site and any content beyond the identifier should not be presumed to reflect the content or views of the source ontology.
