Book description

Recent years have seen major advances in the understanding of motor and non-motor operations of the cerebellum, including its role in cognition, and important discoveries in the genetics of the cerebellar ataxias. This is a comprehensive text on the cerebellum and its disorders. It ranges from embryology and basic neuroanatomy to a thorough survey of the sporadic and hereditary disorders of the cerebellum. Models of cerebellar function and clinical-pathophysiological correlations are thoroughly covered, and there is an extensive and authoritative review of recent advances in the genetics of cerebellar diseases. The chapters are written by the leading international authorities on the cerebellum, including many of those who made fundamental discoveries in the field. The first comprehensive text on the cerebellum to be published for many years, this book will be essential reading for a wide range of basic and clinical neuroscientists, neurologists and others studying or treating cerebellar disorders.

Reviews

‘This book … constitutes a major reference text for those primarily interested in the basic aspects of cerebellar functions and dysfunctions. it brings information in this domain up to date in a clear and lucid fashion.’

Source: Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology

‘One of the most useful early chapters is the one by Bastian and Thach, who have written an excellent summary of the evidence - based on both recordings from single cells in animals and the effects of regional ablation or inactivation of the cerebellar cortex or nuclei - supporting a role for the cerebellum in behavior.’

Mitchell Gickstein - University College London

'It is an extensive source of information about disorders, some common and many uncommon, that are relevant in a general neurologist's practice. … a valuable review of complex material not easily found in basic neuroscience textbooks or journals. I recommend this book to neurology residents for its basic science and clinical content. Practising neurologists will find it an excellent reference to use for assistance with the diagnosis and understanding of patients with cerebellar dysfunction.'

Brian A. Anderson MD - University of Manitoba

'The book assembles an impressive list of authors, each of whom specializes in one or another aspects of cerebellar study.'

‘This is substantial, impressive, well referenced, exceedingly well illustrated and indeed beautiful internationally authored text … Even on first inspection, this scientific tour de force is a must for every department of neurology.’
