New horizons in cerebellum research

Edited by Adriana Conforto and Dennis Schutter

In recent years, notable advances have increased our understanding of cerebellar function and the potential uses of cerebellar stimulation for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric conditions. The major goal of this thematic series, published in Cerebellum & Ataxias, is to focus on developments in the use of cerebellar brain stimulation techniques, in basic and clinical neuroscience.
