Brain Architecture: DAC and the Cerebellum

Thursday, 3 September, 2015 - 15:30 to 17:30

This tutorial will be address the function of the cerebellum in the acquisition of anticipatory reflexes, such as the conditioned eye-blink reflex, the vestibulo ocular reflex or anticipatory postural adjustments. In the first part of the tutorial I will propose a definition of anticipatory reflexes as reactions to predicted stimuli. In the second part, I will discuss how the olivo-cerebellar system allows blending of anticipatory feed-forward behavior with reactive/feedback one.
