Cerebellum estimates the sensory state of the body

David J. Herzfeld, Reza Shadmehr

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A recent neurophysiology study provides data from the cerebellar vermis/nodulus, where neurons encode translation of the head, even when these translations are induced via an illusion. These data provide new neurophysiological evidence that the cerebellum is important for computations involving internal models of motion, estimating the state of the body.
