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.

  1. Content type: Research

    The control of grip forces when moving a hand held object is impaired in patients with cerebellar degeneration. We asked the question whether after-effects of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tD...

  3. Content type: Research

    Low-frequency electrical stimulation to the motor cortex (LFSMC) depresses the excitability of motor circuits by long-term depression (LTD)-like effects. The interactions between LFSMC and cathodal direct curr...
