Lesions of the dentate and interposed nuclei are associated with impaired prehension in cerebellar patients.


In a recent study using voxel based lesion symptom mapping (VLSM) in cerebellar patients following stroke we found associations of prehensile deficits to lesions of the cerebellar cortex and dentate nucleus (DN). Associations to lesions of the interposed nucleus (IN), which has been shown to contribute to prehension in monkeys, could not be established. One… (More)
