This book is concerned with the involvement of the cerebellum in learning and remembering the ability to carry out motor tasks such as walking, riding a bicycle, and speaking. Processes of plasticity have been identified at the cellular level in the cerebellum that could underlie the learning of motor tasks but whether they actually have such a role is controversial. This book is unique in bringing together studies of plasticity at the cellular level with studies of plasticity or learning at the behavioral level and in attempting to build bridges between these two levels of discourse. The book will appeal to neuroscientists and physiologists interested in the neural control of movement.
