The cerebellum receives paths from most, if not from all, of the afferent roots.
In comparison with reptiles the cerebellum of birds shows high development.
Examination of the cerebellum by the method of Wallerian degeneration has shown that a large number of spinal and bulbar nerve cells send branches up into it.
The seeming want of reaction of so much of the cerebellar structure under artificial stimulation, and the complex relay system revealed in the histology of the cerebellum, suggest that the impressions are elaborate.
Injuries of the cerebellum, if large, derange the power of executing movements, without producing any detectable derangement of sensation.
Not a hundredth part of the cerebellum has remained, and yet there has existed ability to stand, to walk, to handle and lift objects in a fairly normal way, without any trace of impairment of cutaneous or muscular sensitivity.
The hemispheres are rather elongated and subcylindrical, the olfactory lobes are large and project freely in front of the' hemispheres, and the greater part of the cerebellum is uncovered.
The damage to the cerebellum must, it would seem, occur abruptly or quickly in order to occasion marked derangement of function, and then the derangement falls on the execution of movements.
Disorder of the cerebellum sets at variance, brings discord into, the space-perceptions contributory to the movement.
It is with this sort of habitually apsychical reaction that the cerebellum is, it would seem, employed.
cerebellum of the human brain.
It is expressed in various brain regions, including the cerebellum.
Q: How does the exercise program stimulate the cerebellum?
Q: What are some examples of the exercises and how does each of them affect the cerebellum?
The virus affects the brain diffusely, but seems to particularly involve the cerebellum, producing problems with balance, coordination and speech.
PrP accumulation Image analysis was used to quantify PrP plaque formation in the tissue samples of human cerebellum.
cerebellum predictors and the equilibrium point hypothesis.
cerebellum brain function returns to normal those with labels of dyslexia, dyspraxia, add and adhd all start to improve.
cerebellum part of the brain that is involved in coordination.
cerebellum area of the brain.
cerebellum in autism.
Pons - the part of the brainstem that joins the hemispheres of the cerebellum and connects the cerebrum with the cerebellum.
I had had an unusual stroke, a clot lodged in the cerebellum, rather than the more common left or right cerebrum.
On the second image, a haemorrhagic contusion is seen in the cerebellum.
The MRI showed that I had suffered an infarct in my left cerebellum, and they still can't say why.
A-T is a progressive disease that affects the cerebellum (the body's motor control center) and, in about 70 percent of cases, weakens the immune system as well, leading to respiratory disorders.
This symptom results from neurologic abnormalities affecting the cerebellum that controls balance.
The cerebellum atrophies early in the disease, being visibly smaller on MRI examination by seven or eight years of age.
Chiari II anomaly-A structural abnormality of the lower portion of the brain (cerebellum and brainstem) associated with spina bifida.
Neurosurgical techniques in the brain such as implanting tiny electrodes directly into the cerebellum or cutting a portion of the hypothalamus have very specific uses and have had mixed results.
Another area of the brain that appears to be linked to phobias is the posterior cerebellum.
For reasons that are unclear as of 2004, part of the cerebellum is displaced downward into the spinal column.
The Dandy-Walker malformation is a brain defect marked by incomplete formation or absence of the central section of the cerebellum and the growth of cysts within the lowest of the brain's ventricles.
There are four major regions of the brain affected in Chiari malformation: the cerebellum, the brain stem, the ventricles, and the cerebrum.
The cerebellum is located at the base of the skull and is divided into two parts or hemispheres with a third section that connects the hemispheres.
The brain stem is located in front of the cerebellum and is composed of two parts.
They are located above and in front of the cerebellum, and their function is to produce and circulate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the protective fluid that circulates through the brain and the spinal cord.
It is located above the cerebellum and is responsible for the higher functions of the brain, such as thought.
In Type I malformation, the lower portions of the cerebellum, known as the cerebellar tonsils, protrude through the opening in the skull known as the foramen magnum and into the spinal cord canal.
Type II malformation, sometimes called Arnold Chiari malformation, is more severe than Type I and involves herniation of a more significant part of the cerebellum, part of the fourth ventricle, and parts of the brain stem.
In Type III malformation, parts of the cerebellum and the brain stem protrude into a spina bifida defect located at the base of the skull, on the neck.
Chiari malformation may result because the cerebellum is of normal size, but the bones at the base of the skull are too small.
Movement is produced and coordinated by several interacting brain centers, including the motor cortex, the cerebellum, and a group of structures in the inner portions of the brain called the basal ganglia.
Both postural and proprioceptive information are processed by a structure at the rear of the brain called the cerebellum.
The cerebellum sends out electrical signals to modify movements as they progress, "sculpting" the barrage of voluntary commands into a tightly controlled, constantly evolving pattern.
Disorders of the cerebellum may also impair the ability to judge distance so that a person under- or over-reaches the target (dysmetria).
Both the cerebellum and the motor cortex send information to a set of structures deep within the brain that help control involuntary components of movement (basal ganglia).
Hereditary ataxia-One of a group of hereditary degenerative diseases of the spinal cord or cerebellum.
The right and left lobes themselves are rent asunder (so to speak), so that they are freely visible from above, filling the corners formed by the hemispheres and the cerebellum.
And the smooth hemispheres of the brain do not extend backwards so as to cover any part of the cerebellum.
The attitude may be described as due to prolonged, not very intense, discharge from reflex centres that regulate posture and are probably intimately connected with the cerebellum.
Cerebellum - occupies most of the posterior cranial fossa; damage produces ataxia, slurring of speech.
This part of the brain is called the cerebellum.
