The cerebellum is a key structure for the control of movement. However, the exact role of the cerebellum in motor control is unclear or at least highly controversial. One prominent hypothesis is that the cerebellum is important for motor learning. We review the evidence used to support this hypothesis during procedural or skill learning and find that although it is clear that the cerebellum is engaged during the process, there are no unequivocal data showing that the cerebellum is essential for learning to occur.
