Duality in operation; how our brain controls eye movements

Project summary

The cerebellum, also known as little brain, plays a crucial role in integrating the information from our senses with the movements we want to make. Loss of function in the cerebellum can lead to various disorders, including balance, eye movement and speech problems. However, how the cerebellum functions is largely unknown. Recent developments make it possible to divide the cerebellum into two subpopulations, and study these independently.


By investigating how these subpopulations operate, individually and in cooperation, to control eye movements, we aim to understand how the cerebellum functions.
