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.

Key Features

  • 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


Neuroscientists, neuropsychiatrists and neurologists, neural network researchers, general scientists and medical practitioners with specialized interest in memory and cognition, researchers in academic neurology and medical neuropsychology, graduate students in neuroscience, clinicians.
