Let \(\pi \) be a cuspidal, cohomological automorphic representation of \(\mathrm {GL}_n({\mathbb A})\). Venkatesh has suggested that there should exist a natural action of the exterior algebra of a certain motivic cohomology group on the \(\pi \)-part of the Betti cohomology (with rational coefficients) of the \(\mathrm {GL}_n({\mathbb Q})\)-arithmetic locally symmetric space. Venkatesh has given evidence for this conjecture by showing that its ‘l-adic realization’ is a consequence of the Taylor–Wiles formalism. We show that its ‘p-adic realization’ is related to the properties of eigenvarieties.
