  • Genetic
  • Hereditary cerebellar ataxia is a type of autosomal dominant genetic disease, lesions mainly involving the cerebellum, but the spinal cord and cranial nerves may also be some involvement. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • nuclei
  • The four deep nuclei of the cerebellum are the dentate, emboliform, globose, and fastigii nuclei and they act as the main centers of communication, sending and receiving information to and from specific parts of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • cognitive
  • Stoodley CJ, Schmahmann JD (2010) Evidence for topographic organization in the cerebellum of motor control versus cognitive and affective processing. (springer.com)
  • In humans, the cerebellum plays an important role in motor control, and it may also be involved in some cognitive functions such as attention and language as well as in regulating fear and pleasure responses, but its movement-related functions are the most solidly established. (wikipedia.org)
  • brain
  • Low Cerebellum' is the position of the cerebellum sometimes in individuals when it is near the opening of the brain into the spinal cord which is lower down. (medhelp.org)
  • Create healthcare diagrams like this example called Brain Function - Brainstem & Cerebellum in minutes with SmartDraw. (smartdraw.com)
  • The coordinated activity of the multiple parts of the cerebellum enables this region of the brain to control refined, coordinated muscle movements and balance. (fsu.edu)
  • The cerebellum an area located in the lower rear of the brain is known to process external and internal information such as sensory cues that influence the development of other brain regions, the researchers report in the journal Neuron . (medindia.net)
  • Based on a review of existing research, the researchers offer a new theory that an injury to the cerebellum during early life potentially disrupts this process and leads to what they call "developmental diaschisis," which is when a loss of function in one part of the brain leads to problems in another region. (medindia.net)
  • They also reference studies in 2004 and 2005 that found that the cerebellum is the most frequently disrupted brain region in people with autism. (medindia.net)
  • White cerebellum sign can be associated with raised intracranial pressure that occurs due to anoxic or ischemic changes in the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • As explained in more detail in the Function section, the cerebellum differs from most other brain areas in that the flow of neural signals through it is almost entirely unidirectional: there are virtually no backward connections between its neuronal elements. (wikipedia.org)
  • SaraBellum Records, sublabel of 5 Minute Walk In the credits to A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor states the show is "written by Sarah Bellum" in a joking reference to his own brain (cerebellum). (wikipedia.org)
  • neural
  • The cerebellum is responsible for integrating a significant amount of neural information that is used to coordinate smoothly ongoing movements and to participate in motor planning. (wikipedia.org)
  • researchers
  • For instance, the researchers cite a 2007 paper in the journal Pediatrics that found that individuals who experienced cerebellum damage at birth were 40 times more likely to score highly on autism screening tests. (medindia.net)
  • motor
  • The cerebellum functions in motor control by coordinating movements including those involving precise and accurate movements. (instructables.com)
  • In addition to its direct role in motor control, the cerebellum is necessary for several types of motor learning, most notably learning to adjust to changes in sensorimotor relationships. (wikipedia.org)
  • functions
  • From the phylogenetically oldest to the newest, the three parts are: Much of what is understood about the functions of the cerebellum stems from careful documentation of the effects of focal lesions in human patients who have suffered from injury or disease or through animal lesion research. (wikipedia.org)
  • side
  • I had a MRI & CINE flow study done back to back the CINE showed okay flow but the Doctor showed me were the Cerebellum is pushing from it's side into the fluid opening and open were the tonsils are only protruding 5mm when before it was unto 11mm and CINE showed blockage.has anyone else experienced this? (dailystrength.org)
  • My neurologist just informed me that Osteoporosis and shrinkage of the Cerebellum are very serious side effects for long term users of Dilantin. (medhelp.org)
  • Also go in for an MRI to evaluate the other side effect: Shrinkage of the Cerebellum, which I understand can cause issues with balance! (medhelp.org)
  • source
  • The Cerebellum will cover all the latest developments in this field to ensure readers are kept fully up to date from one source. (springer.com)
  • people
  • We hope to get people and scientists thinking differently about the cerebellum or about autism so that the whole field can move forward. (medindia.net)
  • process
  • In autism, something in that process goes wrong and one thing could be that sensory information is not processed correctly in the cerebellum. (medindia.net)
