Cerebellar information flow in the thalamus: Implications for cortical functions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cerebro-cerebellar interactions are becoming progressively more focused in their anatomical substrate but their functional meaning is still elusive. Here, we review current data on the cerebellar influence on cortical function, with special emphasis on the importance of the cerebellar input for cortical processing in primary motor and sensorimotor areas. Differences in the intracortical processing of cerebellar information are described and the possible role of the thalamus in controlling cerebro-cerebellar loops discussed.
