  1. The detection and generation of sequences as a key to cerebellar function: Experiments and theory.Valentino Braitenberg, Detlef Heck & Fahad Sultan - 1997 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (2):229-245.
    Starting from macroscopic and microscopic facts of cerebellar histology, we propose a new functional interpretation that may elucidate the role of the cerebellum in movement control. The idea is that the cerebellum is a large collection of individual lines (Eccles's : Eccles et al. 1967a) that respond specifically to certain sequences of events in the input and in turn produce sequences of signals in the output. We believe that the sequence-in/sequence-out mode of operation is as typical for the cerebellar cortex (...)

    What has to be learned in motor learning?Harold Bekkering, Detlef Heck & Fahad Sultan - 1996 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 19 (3):436-437.
    The present commentary considers the question of what must be learned in different types of motor skills, thereby limiting the question of what should be adjusted in the APG model in order to explain successful learning. It is concluded that an open loop model like the APG might well be able to describe the learning pattern of motor skills in a stable, predictable environment. Recent research on saccadic plasticity, however, illustrates that motor skills performed in an unpredictable environment depend heavily (...)

    Waiting for the ultimate theory of the cerebellum.Valentino Braitenberg, Detlef Heck & Fahad Sultan - 1997 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (2):267-271.
    Although our idea of sequential input being a key to cerebellar function was taken seriously by most commentators, there were also objections, based in part on experimental evidence that seems to contradict our intuitions and in part on commentators' preferences for different schemes. Several were suspicious of experiments (performed on slices of cerebellar tissue) that may have severed some of the synaptic connections, particularly the inhibitory ones. It is our feeling that a modi-fication of our theory that could satisfy most (...)
