Over the prior few semesters a gaggle of neurologists, neurophysiologists, and mind theorists in a number of departments of Tlibingen college have amassed periodically that allows you to overview principles and proof on cerebel­ lar capabilities. now and then, common suggestions appeared shut, while credits was once given to varied theoretical proposals complex because the early days of cer­ ebellar body structure, in spite of the fact that, it turned transparent in each case that an enormous a part of the to be had proof refused to undergo the final rules. As believers within the energy of clinical dialogue, we felt that the time used to be ripe for posing the matter of the cerebellum once again to a good­ articulated workforce of experts that might contain proponents of each disparate standpoint. The sponsorship of the Max Planck Society and of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, to whom we exhibit our profound gratitude, made it attainable to arrange a global assembly in Septem­ ber, 1983. the purpose of constructing new, even extravagant principles palatable to one another used to be good finished via the individuals. We belief that many of the resulting pleasure has been carried over into the broadcast version.

There is considerable evidence that the normal EMG responses to perturbations are mediated in part by supra-segmental pathways involving a loop through motor cortex (Evarts 1973, Phillips and Porter 1977). In addition the work of Evarts and Tanji (1976) suggests that the components mediating prior instructions or set also traverse the motor A Cerebellar-dependent Efference Copy Mechanism 31 cortex. To examine whether the predictive aspect of the early antagonist response was also mediated by the motor cortex and to determine whether this activity in motor cortex was dependent on the integrity of the cerebellum, we compared the responses of units in motor cortex before and after reversible lesions of the cerebellum.

One possibility is that set can modulate or gate the synaptic efficacy of stretch reflexes. In the case of Nashner's experiment reflex loops could be modulated or even opened or closed depending on the motor set. Another possibility is that set allows the preprogramming of the appropriate response which then is triggered or released by the initial stretch. This mode is suggested in the experiments of Evarts and Tanji (1976) which dissociated reflex from intended muscle activity. Here set-dependent activity in both muscle and motor cortex was triggered by a perturbation independent of the direction of the initial stretch.

7A, B). However when the perturbation initially stretched biceps and the cerebellar nuclei were cooled (Fig. 7D) the activity of the cortical unit was delayed as was activity of triceps. This suggests that the normal early antagonist EMG response, which precedes the start of antagonist stretch, is mediated by motor cortex and is dependent on the integrity of the cerebellum. 4 Discussion One Significance of training is that it enables skilled movements to be performed that are anticipatory or predictive in nature.
