Abstract

Today, 25 years or so after, neuroscientific, neuropsychiatric, and neuropsychological research began to focus on the question of whether the cerebellum is involved in cognitive and/or affective functions, the discussion goes well beyond these issues. Now, the focus is on how the cerebellum participates in cognition, emotion, and motivation [111, 212, 213] and how it contributes to the symptom pictures in a variety of psychiatric disorders.
