The role of the cerebellum in oculomotor selection
MetadataShow full item record
Vision is the dominant percept of humans. We constantly make eye movements to analyse our environment and determine what actions need to be taken and prepared for. Oculomotor response selection is, therefore, crucial to our survival. Although it is known that the cerebellum (CB) plays some role in correctly guiding oculomotor selection it is unclear what its contribution is. In this project the hypothesis is investigated that the CB monitors the integration of exogenous and endogenous information in saccade generation. We will combine fMRI and eye-tracking in a recently validated method to link neuronal and behavioural consequences in one framework.
