Focal activity is observed in the lateral cerebellar hemispheres during the processing of auditory, visual, cutaneous, spatial, and tactile information, and in anterior-medial cerebellar regions during somatomotor behavior. Moreover, a double dissociation exists between (a) cerebellar activity… CONTINUE READING
