This commentary reinterprets our recent data on the cerebellar
contribution to different cognitive functions in light of Braitenberg
and coworkers's hypothesis about the sequence-in/sequence-out
cerebellar mode of operation in the motor domain. Cerebellar
involvement in spatial data processing, procedural learning, verbal
fluency, application of grammatical rules, and writing is dependent
on sequence processing.
