The cerebellum and cognition: cerebellar lesions impair sequence learning but not conditional visuomotor learning in monkeys.

Abstract:

Claims that the cerebellum contributes to cognitive processing in humans have arisen from both functional neuroimaging and patient studies. These claims challenge traditional theories of cerebellar function that ascribe motor functions to this structure. We trained monkeys to perform both a visuomotor conditional associative learning task and a visually guided sequence task, and studied the effects of bilateral excitotoxic lesions in the lateral cerebellar nuclei. In the first experiment thre...
