The cerebellum is a region of the brain that plays an important role in motor control. It is also involved in some cognitive functions such as attention and language, and in some emotional functions such as regulating fear and pleasure responses. In this book, the authors present current research from across the globe in the study of the anatomy, function and disorders of the cerebellum. Topics discussed include foetal alcohol spectrum disorders and the cerebellum; the role of the cerebellum in ageing cognition; the cerebellum and Parkinson’s disease; hypoxia induced changes in the brain; and, synaptic plasticity and motor learning in the cerebellum.
