The Cerebellum and Cognition pulls together a preeminent group of authors. The cerebellum has been previously considered as a highly complex structure involved only with motor control. The cerebellum is essential to nonmotor functions, and recent research has revealed new medically important roles of the cerebellum and cognitive processes.

  • Selected for inclusion in Doody's Core Titles 2013, an essential collection development tool for health sciences libraries
  • Comprehensive coverage of cerebellum in motor control and cognition
  • New developments regarding the cerebellum and motor systems
  • Therapeutic implications of cerebellar contributions to cognition
  • Preeminent group of contributors
