Marr's theory of the cerebellar cortex as an associative learning device is one of the best examples of a theory that directly relates the function of a neural system to its neural structure. However, although he assigned a precise function to each of the identified cell types of the cerebellar cortex, many of the crucial aspects of the implementation of his theory remained unspecified. We attempted to resolve these difficulties by constructing a computer simulation which contained a direct… CONTINUE READING
