The Cerebellar Cognitive Affective Syndrome and the Neuropsychiatry of the Cerebellum

TLDR
This chapter focuses on the behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry of the cerebellum and emphasizes the clinically relevant manifestations for adults and children with a wide range of cerebellar disorders.

Ferdinando Rossi Lecture: the Cerebellar Cognitive Affective Syndrome-Implications and Future Directions.

TLDR
A new appreciation of the cerebellum incorporation into circuits that subserve cognition and emotion enables deeper understanding and improved care of patients with cerebellar ataxias and novel Cerebellar-based approaches to therapy in neuropsychiatry.

Disruption of Cerebellar Prediction in Verbal Working Memory

TLDR
It is hypothesized that a similar predictive process can generalize to cerebellar non-motor function, and that the right cerebellum plays a predictive role that is beneficial for rapidly engaging the phonological loop in verbal working memory.

The Social Cerebellum: A Large-Scale Investigation of Functional and Structural Specificity and Connectivity.

TLDR
This study leveraged large-scale multimodal neuroimaging data to elucidate the structural and functional role of the cerebellum in mentalizing and provides novel insights to the network organization of the Cerebellum, an overlooked brain structure, and mentalizing, one of humans' most essential abilities to navigate the social world.

Dysmetria and Errors in Predictions: The Role of Internal Forward Model

TLDR
It is proposed that motor dysmetria observed in attacks of ataxia occurs as a result of impaired predictive computation of the internal forward model in the cerebellum.

The basal ganglia and the cerebellum in human emotion

TLDR
This review will discuss the basic structure and function of the BG and cerebellum and propose an updated view of their functional role in human affective processing.

The Cerebro-Cerebellum as a Locus of Forward Model: A Review

TLDR
Physiological, behavioral, and morphological evidence converging to the view of the cerebro-cerebellum as loci of internal forward models are surveyed, and it is speculated that the predictive computation of the internal forward model is the unifying algorithmic principle for understanding diverse functions played by the cerebellum.

Altered Cerebro-Cerebellar Limbic Network in AD Spectrum: A Resting-State fMRI Study

TLDR
As the cerebellum is not compromised by Alzheimer pathology in the prodromal stage of AD, this pattern indicates that the sub-scale ventral attention network may play a pivotal role in functional compensation through the coupled cerebro-cerebellar limbic network in MCI, and the Cerebellum may be a key node in the modulation of social cognition.

TLDR
The cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome (CCAS) includes impairments in executive, visual-spatial, and linguistic abilities, with affective disturbance ranging from emotional blunting and depression, to disinhibition and psychotic features.

Cerebellum and nonmotor function.

TLDR
Neuroimaging and neuropsychological data supply compelling support for the view that a closed-loop circuit represents the major architectural unit of cerebro-cerebellar interactions and provides the cerebellum with the anatomical substrate to influence the control of movement and cognition.

From movement to thought: Anatomic substrates of the cerebellar contribution to cognitive processing

TLDR
These proposed rules and the general and specific hypotheses offered are testable using functional neuroimaging techniques and may thus be mutually advantageous in predicting and explaining new concepts of cerebellar function.

The cerebrocerebellar system: anatomic substrates of the cerebellar contribution to cognition and emotion

TLDR
Knowing the connections between the cerebellum and brain structures known to be associated with a wide array of non-motor behaviors is critical to the further development of hypotheses, experimental approaches, and clinical questions that can advance the understanding of the contribution of the Cerebellum to cognition and to disorders of intellect and emotion.

The cerebrocerebellar system.

TLDR
The neural circuitry postulated to subserve the cerebellar contribution to nonmotor processing, particularly cognitive and affective modulation, is described, and the theoretical implications of these anatomic findings are discussed.

The cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome.

TLDR
A constellation of deficits is suggestive of disruption of the Cerebellar modulation of neural circuits that link prefrontal, posterior parietal, superior temporal and limbic cortices with the cerebellum, called the 'cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome'.
