    Department of Molecular Biology, Lewis Thomas Laboratory, Washington Road, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA
    Eur J Neurosci 21:2285-90. 2005
    ..These axons were 0.4-1.1 microm wide, have expected conduction times of 0.5-1.0 ms, and may convey fast feedforward inhibition via basket cells to Purkinje cells...
