A century of cerebellar somatotopy: a debated representation

  title={A century of cerebellar somatotopy: a debated representation},
  author={Ermanno Manni and Laura Petrosini},
  journal={Nature Reviews Neuroscience},
The existence of functional localization within the cerebellum was advanced exactly one century ago by both comparative anatomical and physiological studies. Here, we will discuss how models of cerebellar localization have evolved over the last 100 years. Like the somatotopic representation in neocortical sensorimotor areas, the representation size of different body parts in the cerebellum does not reflect their peripheral extent, but rather the different demands on the sensory inputs for… CONTINUE READING
