Abstract The olivo-cerebellar network plays a key role in the organization of vertebrate motor control. The oscillatory properties of inferior olive (IO) neurons have been shown to provide timing signals for motor coordination in which spatio-temporal coherent oscillatory neuronal clusters control movement dynamics. Based on the neuronal connectivity and electrophysiology of the olivo-cerebellar network we have developed a general-purpose control approach, which we refer to as a universal control system (UCS), capable of dealing with a large number of actuator parameters in real time. In this UCS, the imposed goal and the resultant feedback from the actuators specify system properties. The goal is realized through implementing an architecture that can regulate a large number of parameters simultaneously by providing stimuli-modulated spatio-temporal cluster dynamics.
