BACKGROUND Lesion topography and the pathophysiological background of dysarthria due to focal cerebellar lesions have not yet been fully clarified. OBJECTIVES To investigate the lesion topography of dysarthria due to cerebellar ischemia and evaluate brainstem functions. DESIGN Case studies. PATIENTS Eighteen right-handed patients with sudden-onset dysarthria and cerebellar ischemia with and without brainstem involvement and 19 healthy, right-handed, monolingual, German-speaking volunteers… CONTINUE READING
