5/5(1). What the cerebellum does to sensorimotor and vestibular control, it also does to cognition, emotion, and autonomic function. This hypothesis is based on the theories of dysmetria of thought and the universal cerebellar transform, which hold that the cerebellum maintains behavior around a homeostatic baseline, automatically, without conscious awareness, informed by implicit Cited by: Search by multiple ISBN, single ISBN, title, author, etc Login | Sign Up | Settings | Sell Books | Wish List: ISBN Actions: Add to Bookbag Sell Book Edition: 1st Edition.

There is increasing recognition that the cerebellum contributes to cognitive processing and emotional control in addition to its role in motor coordination.

It refers to a constellation of deficits in the cognitive domains of executive function, spatial cognition, language, and affect resulting from damage to the cerebellum.

This special edition volume of The Cerebellum therefore presents an over-view of current thinking regarding the cerebellum's role in both movement and thought. The general consensus no longer concerns whether or not the cerebellum plays a role in cognition, but instead, concerns how the cerebellum contributes to both movement and by: A shift in the understanding of the cerebellum has taken place over the past 25 years.

The majority of the human cerebellum is associated with cerebral networks involved in cognition, which is an astonishing finding given that, until quite recently, the cerebellum was thought to contribute primarily to the planning and execution of movementsCited by: The Role of the Cerebellum in Cognition and Emotion: The Cerebellum and Cognition Reflections Since on the Dysmetria of Thought Hypothesis, and Its Historical Evolution from Theory to Therapy.

Cognition, emotion and the cerebellum. – Legg C, Mercier B, failures to replicate published findings pose a challenge to the acceptance of claims for a role for the cerebellum in. Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in social cognition at its core.

Human and animal studies converge in the existence of a network of key brain structures involved in the perception, integration, and coding of social cues. These structures mainly involve areas traditionally associated with cognitive function, such as the Author: Marta Fernández, Teresa Sierra-Arregui, Olga Peñagarikano.

Disorders of cognition are a salient feature of autism and allied syndromes, and whatever their causes, which are likely to be multiple, they are a disorder of early brain development.

The cerebellum (Latin for "little brain") is a major feature of the hindbrain of all gh usually smaller than the cerebrum, in some animals such as the mormyrid fishes it may be as large as or even larger.

Further analysis suggests not: neocortex volume is significantly and independently correlated with volumes of both visual thalamus (LGN) and cerebellum, after accounting for variation in other brain structures (PGLS, neocortex volume regressed on volumes of cerebellum, LGN and rest of the brain; λ =r 2 = ; LGN, t 4,42 =p = 0 Cited by: We argue that cerebellar contributions to cognition are computationally plausible, given its reciprocal connectivity with the cerebral cortex, and suggest that this function of the cerebellum may be an example of an evolutionary process by which mechanisms originally evolved for one function (in this case, motor control).

The role of the cerebellum has traditionally been seen as limited to the coordination of voluntary movement, gait, posture, speech, and motor functions. 1 The cerebellum has not conventionally been seen as relevant to the field of psychiatry or to the study of brain–behavior relationships.

There is evidence, however, that the cerebellum may have a role to play in cognition, Cited by:   The Paperback of the The Cerebellum and Cognition: The Cerebellum and Cognition by Jeremy D.

: Language, cognition and the cerebellum: Grappling with an enigma Alan Beatona,* and Peter Marie¨nb a Department of Psychology, University of Swansea, Wales, UK b Department of Neurology, ZNA Middelheim Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium The part played by the cerebellum in higher cognitive func-tions has been and remains something of an enigma.

The cerebellum contributes to higher functions during development: evidence from a series of children surgically treated for posterior fossa tumours. Brain ; (Pt 5): –   Emotion attribution (EA) from faces is key to social cognition, and deficits in perception of emotions from faces underlie neuropsychiatric disorders in which cerebellar pathology is reported.

Here, we test the hypothesis that the cerebellum contributes to social cognition through EA from faces. We examined 57 patients with cerebellar disorders and 57 Cited by:   Evidence for a role of the human cerebellum in cognitive functions comes from anatomical, clinical and neuroimaging data.

Functional neuroimaging reveals cerebellar activation during a variety of cognitive tasks, including language, visual–spatial, executive, and working memory processes.
