Description:

Pioneering neuroscientist Masao Ito explains his view that the cerebellum is not only involved in postural and motor control, but also models cognitive processes and representations, contributing to higher cortical functioning. Ito, discoverer of long-term depression, is a highly-respected investigator; controversy surrounding some of his ideas will also promote interest in this book.
