The aim of this study was to see in monkeys if neurons in dentate and lateral interposed deep cerebellar nuclei are preferentially active in relation to certain movements relative to others. Simple and compound digit movements were trained with digits, hand, and elbow constrained in a cast. The constrained simple movement was flexion of Thumb or Index; the… CONTINUE READING
