Cerebellum: Clinical Pathology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In the past 20. years, much has changed of our understanding of cerebellar functioning; nevertheless, the clinical approach to cerebellar symptoms is remarkably similar to that in use at the beginning of 1900. In this article, a classical approach to signs and symptoms related to cerebellar damage is presented together with a modern interpretation of the pathophysiological mechanisms. The importance of the cerebellum in cognition is the focus, with emphasis on the clinical relevance of the understanding of cerebro-cerebellar interactions.
