Abstract Based on our previous assumption that the brain must be considered a tensorial entity ( Pellionisz & Llinas, 1979 a), a concise model for cerebellar function is proposed: The cerebellum acts as a metric tensor establishing a geometry for the CNS motor hyperspace. This view assumes that the brain is a ‘geometrical object’, that is to say, (1) activity in the neuronal network is vectorial, and (2) the networks are organized tensorially: i.e. activity vectors remain invariant to changes… Expand
