Quantitative electron microscope study of synaptic input to 40 cerebellar basked neurons in the rat has revealed that while the dendritic tree (1580 μm on average) receives almost exclusively excitatory parallel fibers (2420/dendritic tree of single basket cell), the perikaryonal surface receives in addition to parallel axons a well developed (26% of all axosomatic boutons) inhibitory input. The few climbing fibers contacting BC somata were not observed to establish true synaptic articulations.
