  • Monkeys were trained to grasp a handle and move it in a horizontal arc to a central position by flexing or extending the wrist. A torque motor applied forces to the handle that switched at random intervals to alternately load flexor and extensor muscles. At each load switch, the handle was displaced transiently from the central position, and then moved back by the monkeys and held there steadily again. Recordings were made from cerebellar Purkinje cells (P-cells) whose simple spike (SS… CONTINUE READING
