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. Review

    Cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation in neurological disease

    Several studies have highlighted the therapeutic potential of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in patients with neurological diseases, including dementia, epilepsy, post-stroke dysfunctions, move...

  2. Research

    The in vivo reduction of afferent facilitation induced by low frequency electrical stimulation of the motor cortex is antagonized by cathodal direct current stimulation of the cerebellum

    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...
