The cerebellum plays an important role in predicting and producing regularly timed motor responses. In the present report, we examined the performance of SCA6 cerebellar patients and normal controls in a simple saccade tracking task. Our results imply that the cerebellum plays a role in maintaining predictive motor behavior once it has been established.
