The Cerebellum and Cognition
Cerebellar function has traditionally been understood as being confined to the control of voluntary movement. Recent research revises this narrow view and suggests that the cerebellum is critically involved in a number of nonmotor behaviors and cognitive operations. The Cerebellum and Cognition is a comprehensive work that defines this emerging field of investigation into the nature and extent of the cerebellar involvement in nonmotor processing, including thought, language, memory, and mood. Authoritative and in-depth discussions by a preeminent group of authors who have helped shape this field of inquiry are presented. This volume will appeal to cognitive neuroscientists, neuropsychiatrists, and neurologists, as well as scientist and medical practitioners with specialized interest in cognition, behavior, and motor control.

...an impressive and extremely interesting book... It is rare that a book on any subject has both specificity and breath, particularly when it deals with a relatively new area with many implications. It is a tribute to the editor and the other contributors that this book accomplishes this elusive combination. The book can be enthusiastically recommended to any clinician or researcher who has an interest in neurological relationships, whether with the cerebellum in particular or neurological function in general. -PERCEPTUAL AND MOTOR SKILLS (1999)
