Distributed Networks: New Outlooks on Cerebellar Function
by Thomas C. Watson, et al.
Publisher: Frontiers Media SA 2015
Number of pages: 211
Accumulating evidence suggests that the cerebellum subserves functions beyond the sensorimotor realm. This possibility has received considerable attention during the past quarter century, with recent findings revealing putative cerebellar roles in cognition, emotion and spatial navigation. These functions are potentially underpinned by the behaviour-dependent formation of functional networks in which the cerebellum forms one node of distributed circuits spanning thalamic, limbic and neocortical regions.
