The cerebellum contains over half of the brains neurons, and its connections with the cerebral cortex form the cortico-cerebellar system – one of the largest anatomical systems in the primate brain. The work of the lab has focussed on its anatomical structure, interactions with the neocortex, and the role of cerebellar plasticity in supporting motor and cognitive skills. Current projects use eye tracking and functional MRI to investigate (i) activity in the cortico-cerebellar system during the learning of cognitive and motor oculomotor skills, (ii) the impact of development and aging on behaviour and the neural system that they depend upon, and (iii) their impact in driving and high performance sport. Funding: BBSRC, Transport Research Laboratory.
