Dendritic spines in glomeruli of the inferior olive are coupled by gap junctions and receive both inhibitory andexcitatory inputs. In this issue of Neuron, Lefler etal. (2014), Mathy etal. (2014), and Turecek etal. (2014) provide new insight into how these inputs modulate electrical coupling and oscillatory activity.
