The Effects Of Cerebellar Stimulation On the Averaged Sensory Evoked Responses in the Cat
Although photic, auditory and somatosensory evoked responses can be recorded on the cerebellum (Snider & Stowell, 1944), and stimulations of the cerebellum can produce evoked responses in the sensory areas of the cerebral cortex (Henneman, Cooke, & Snider, 1950), it is not clearly understood what effect, if any, the cerebellum might have on the perception of sensory information at the cerebral cortical levels. Vague sensations have, however, been produced by stimulating with chronic depth electrodes in the cerebellum of awake humans (Nashold & Slaughter, 1969).
