Decoding Cerebellum Activation in Sensorimotor Learning Tasks Using EEG

Decoding cerebellum signals using EEG has previously believed to be difficult due to the deep location and varied firing features of the cerebellum. However, recent developments in the field have allowed for successful identification of cerebellum-related signals while participants complete tasks that test their motor adaptation. The goal of this project is to more fully map these signals as they relate to the field of sensorimotor learning. This summer, I will work on setting up this experiment, collecting pilot data, and analyzing the EEG.
