In the cerebellar cortex, the granular layer is at the first stage of processing information from other brain regions delivered via mossy fibers. The major components of this neural network are numerous and tiny granule cells (GrC), which are the only excitatory neurons, and Golgi cells (GoC) that provide the only inhibitory inputs to GrCs. Despite such structural simplicity, many questions about their functions remain unanswered.
