    J Neurophysiol 96:1030-41. 2006

  1. Role of cerebellar parallel fibers in saccade accuracy
    Farrel R Robinson; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..In addition, this work will provide the clearest description yet of how the cerebellum transforms input into signals that make movement, in this case eye movement, accurate. ..
  2. Role of cerebellar parallel fibers in saccade accuracy

  3. Role of Oculomotor Vermis Parallel Fibers in Saccades
    Farrel Robinson; Fiscal Year: 2005

    Farrel Robinson; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..This unified view of two apparently different CFN functions would provide the first explicit model for understanding the role of other cerebellar output in controlling and adapting other voluntary movements. ..
