High resolution imaging reveals the human cerebellum is 80% of the area of the cortex. The findings indicate this area of the brain likely grew larger as human behavior and cognition evolved.
Researchers reveal the role GLAST plays in establishing and maintaining neural wiring of Purkinje cells.
While endocannabinoids have been reported to play a role in anti-inflammation in some areas of the brain, a new study reveals they may cause inflammation in the cerebellum.

Rat R222 was born with hydrocephalus. Neuroimaging revealed most of its brain had compressed and collapsed as it filled with fluid. However, despite its condition, the animal was still able to see, hear, smell, and feel like other animals. The study sheds new light on neuroplasticity, and the findings could have implications for the development of new machine learning technologies.
Genes stuck in the "on" position can lead to faulty brain wiring that affects learning and memory, a new study reports.
Acute inflammation of the anterior cerebellum resulted in depression-like symptoms in rodent models. Suppressing microglia helped reduce hyperexcitability and symptoms of depression.
A new study reports those with ADHD are at an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease. The study reveals people with ADHD are twice as likely to develop early onset Parkinson's between the ages of 21-66. Additionally, those who are prescribed stimulant medications to help reduce ADHD symptoms, including Ritalin and Adderal, are at a 6-8 times increased risk of developing Parkinson's.
Gene expressions in the brain that occur early in development may explain why some cerebellar stem cell populations behave differently in people with SCA1, researchers report.
A new study reports amyloid plaques are present shortly after brain injury in middle aged people. The findings may help explain why people who suffer TBIs are at an increased risk for developing Alzheimer's.
