Control and communication > model for learning

There is a range of simple physical tests of sensorimotor skills. These all involve drawing on paper and can be analysed relatively easily. They give an insight into the role of the cerebellum, and could be used to begin discussions about learning and how to study learning processes.

This is likely to be a very familiar protocol. It is simple enough to be used as the basis for a planning exercise (where planning is the main learning objective). Run through and point out features that need to be controlled – in the core experiment, and also issues about ‘double-blind’ testing.
