Lesion or degeneration of the cerebellum can profoundly impair adaptive control of reaching in humans. Computational models have proposed that internal models that help control movements form in the cerebellum and influence planned motor output through the cerebello-thalamo-cortical pathway. However, lesion studies of the cerebellar thalamus have not(More)
The mechanism of essential tremor (ET) is unclear. Animal models of tremor and functional imaging studies in ET predict that the cerebellum and a cerebellar recipient thalamic nucleus (ventral intermediate, Vim) should exhibit oscillatory activity during rest and during tremor due to abnormal olivo-cerebellar activity. Physiologic responses of 152 single(More)
We review the techniques of physiological localization of the site for ventralis intermedius (Vim) thalamotomy or implantation of Vim-deep brain stimulation (DBS) for treatment of parkinsonian, essential, and intention tremor. Both microelectrode and semi-microelectrode techniques are reviewed. We believe the use of microelectrode and semi-microelectrode(More)

These data are consistent with the(More)
While learning and development are well characterized in feedforward networks, these features are more difficult to analyze in recurrent networks due to the increased complexity of dual dynamics - the rapid dynamics arising from activation states and the slow dynamics arising from learning or developmental plasticity. We present analytical and numerical(More)
