What the cerebellum does to sensorimotor and vestibular control, it also does to cognition, emotion, and autonomic function. This hypothesis is based on the theories of dysmetria of thought and the universal cerebellar transform, which hold that the cerebellum maintains behavior around a homeostatic baseline, automatically, without conscious awareness, informed by implicit learning, and performed according to context. Functional topography within the cerebellum facilitates the modulation of… Expand
The Universal Cerebellar Transform and Dysmetria of Thought
Cerebellar neuroscience has undergone a paradigm shift. The theories of the universal cerebellar transform and dysmetria of thought and the principles of organization of cerebral corticalExpand
Cerebellar-Subcortical-Cortical Systems as Modulators of Cognitive Functions.
TLDR
While it is clear that cerebellar insult in childhood affects executive function performance later in life, more work is needed to elucidate the mechanisms by which executive dysfunction occurs and its developmental course. Expand
Contribution of the Cerebellum and the Basal Ganglia to Language Production: Speech, Word Fluency, and Sentence Construction—Evidence from Pathology
TLDR
It is plausible that some disorders observed when damage involves one of these structures could be remote effects of abnormal activity in the other, but in a purely clinical-neuropsychological perspective, primary and remote effects in the network are difficult to disentangle. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Cerebellum and semantic memory: A TMS study using the DRM paradigm
TLDR
The results indicate that the right cerebellum is causally involved in semantic memory and provide evidence consistent with theories that proposed the existence of a unified cerebellar function within motor and cognitive domains, as well with recent perspectives about cerebellary involvement in semanticMemory and predictive functions. Expand
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. Expand
Transient inhibition of the cerebellum impairs change-detection processes: Cerebellar contributions to sensorimotor integration
TLDR
The role of the cerebellum is tested by examining incoming sensory stimuli being unattended by the participant to find out whether it is involved in attentive change-detection processes that are critical for a wide-range of everyday processes. Expand
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. Expand
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.

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. Expand
Evidence for topographic organization in the cerebellum of motor control versus cognitive and affective processing
TLDR
Functional topography is considered to be a consequence of the differential arrangement of connections of the cerebellum with the spinal cord, brainstem, and cerebral hemispheres, reflecting cerebellar incorporation into the distributed neural circuits subserving movement, cognition, and emotion. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand

Abstract Anatomical, clinical, and functional imaging studies suggest that the cerebellum is an essential component of the distributed neural circuitry subserving cognition. This paper addresses theExpand

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. Expand
Functional topography of the cerebellum for motor and cognitive tasks: An fMRI study
TLDR
The cerebellar functional topography identified in this study reflects the involvement of different cerebro-cerebellar circuits depending on the demands of the task being performed: overt movement activated sensorimotor cortices along with contralateral Cerebellar lobules IV-V and VIII, whereas more cognitively demanding tasks engaged prefrontal and parietal corticesAlong with cerebellars VI and VII.

TLDR
Evidence suggesting that the cerebellum is an important part of a set of distributed neural circuits that subserve higher-order processing is supported by the concept of `dysmetria of thought', which draws an analogy with the motor system to describe and explain the impairments of higher- order behavior that result when the distributed Neural circuits subserving cognitive operations are deprived of cerebellar modulation.

The cerebellar cognitive profile.
TLDR
Of the various cognitive domains, the ability to sequence was the most adversely affected in nearly all subjects, supporting the hypothesis that sequencing is a basic cerebellar operation. Expand
