Deficient use of visual information in estimating hand position in cerebellar patients Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We tested cerebellar degeneration in human patients in a task designed to isolate different aspects of motor planning and found a specific relationship between their ability to do inverse kinematic transformation and sparing of Crus I. Our approach was based on an experimental design introduced by Sober and Sabes (2003, 2005). Their paradigm allows behavioral deficits in planning of movement direction to be dissociated from deficits in generation of motor commands and also allows for the relative role played by visual and …
