The Linguistic Cerebellum book cover

The Linguistic Cerebellum

The Cerebellum is a unique part of the brain in that it has the most number of neurons and those neurons operate in distinct networks to perform diverse functions. This book outlines how those distinct networks operate in relation to non motor language skills. Coverage includes cerebellar anatomy and function in relation to speech perception, speech planning, verbal fluency, grammar processing, reading, and writing, as well as discussing language disorders.
