The cerebellum is known to have important functions in motor control, coordination, motor learning, and timing. It may have other "higher" functions as well, up to and including cognitive processing independent of motor behavior. In this article, we will review some of the evidence from functional imaging, lesion studies, electrophysiological recordings, and anatomy which support the theory that the cerebellum provides a "forward model" of the motor system. This forward model would be used for… CONTINUE READING
