This book is concerned with the involvement of the cerebellum in learning and remembering motor tasks. It is unique in discussing plasticity at both the cellular and at the behavioral level.


1. Introduction: motor learning and synaptic plasticity in the cerebellum C. Bell, P. Cordo and S. Harnad; 2. Cerebellar mechanisms of long-term depression in the cerebellum F. Crepel, N. Hemart, D. Jailler and H. Daniel; 3. Long-lasting potentiation of GABAergic inhibitory synaptic transmission in cerebellar Purkinje cells: its properties and possible mechanisms Masanobu Kano; 4. Nitric oxide and synaptic plasticity: NO news from the cerebellum Steven R. Vincent; 5. Models of the cerebellum and motor learning James C. Houk, Jay T. Buckingham and Andrew Barto; 6. On climbing fiber signals and their consequence(s) J. I. Simpson, D. R. Wylie and C. I. De Zeeuw; 7. Does the cerebellum learn strategies for the optimal time-varying control of joint stiffness? Allan M. Smith; 8. On the specific role of the cerebellum in motor learning and cognition: clues from PET activation and lesion studies in man W. T. Thach; Open Peer Commentary; References; Index.


"...for those working in the fields of cerebellar physiology and learning and memory, both at the behavioral and cellular level, this book is a must. There are ideas, hypotheses, data, reviews, speculations, and references to satisfy all. This book will also be of interest to those non-experts who only have time to browse. There is no better account of the current exciting state of cerebellar physiology." The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences "...provides an excellent review of contemporary research on the cerebellum in motor learning. It succeeds in making a significant contribution toward clarifying unresolved and controversial issues through informed commentaries and the replies to them from the original informative book that communicates the current state of cerebellum research." Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
