About the Authors
  • Recent years have seen major advances in the understanding of motor and nonmotor operations of the cerebellum, including its role in cognition, and important discoveries in the genetics of the cerebellar ataxias. This comprehensive text on the cerebellum and its disorders 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.

    • First comprehensive text on the cerebellum and its disorders for two decades
    • Covers the full range of sporadic and hereditary disorders
    • Of interest to basic neuroscientists and clinicians in a range of disciplines

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a substantial, impressive, well referenced, exceedingly well illustrated and indeed beautiful internationally authored text covering most aspects of the cerebellum in health and disease. Even on first inspection, this scientific tour de force is a must for every department of neurology." European Journal of Paediatric Neurology

    "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." Annals RCPSC

    "The editors of this 572-page volume are to be congratulated for bravely taking up and completing the enormous task of reviewing the multiple aspects of cerebellar development, structure, functions, and disorders. Most of the 70 contributors are acknowledged authorities in the field.... Clear and lucid...excellent..." Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology

    "The book presents good clinical and experimental evidence of major differences in the functions of the midline and lateral cerebellum." New England Journal of Medicine

    "All chapters read well and are appropriately succinct, which is presumably the result of judicious editing. The occasional use of color figures throughout the book is helpful...For those interested in the cerebellum, this book is the best comprehensive reference source currently available." Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences

    "...comprehensive...The Cerebellum and Its Disorders concretizes the lofty task of merging current basic neuroscience with clinical topics. Additionally, a nice review of basic topics such as cerebellar development, central connections, and neurotransmission are included for the reader. Equally well done is the compilation of new information on the genetics of cerebellar ataxias. This text would be an appropriate supplement to classic volumes on the cerebellum. Basic scientists, clinicians, and students will find this an applicable and thorough resource on the study of the cerebellum, from both a research and a clinical perspective." Journal of Neurosurgery

    "Practising neurologists will find it an excellent reference to use for assistance with the diagnosis and understanding of patients with cerebellar dysfunction." The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

    "This text is already a classic. It should be on the shelf as reference material for those interested on the cerebellum and cerebellar disorders." Stephen M. Highstein, Clinical Neurophysiology
