Abstract : This research supported by the Office of Naval Research was focussed on how memories for the learning of skilled sensory-motor behaviors are learned, where they are stored in the brain and how these discoveries inform computational models of learning and information processing. We were able to show that (1) these memories are formed and stored in the cerebellum and (2) that the cerebellar neural networks provide a most useful framework for computational modeling.
