    Opening a door, turning a steering wheel, and rotating a coffee mill are typical examples of human movements that are constrained by the physical environment. The constraints decrease the mobility of the human arm and lead to redundancy in the distribution of actuator forces (either joint...

    The cerebellar and spinocerebellar dysfunction seen in Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) has known effects on motor function. Recently, it was suggested that people with FRDA may also have impairment in motor planning, either because of cortical pathology or because of cerebello-cortical projections....

    Abstract. We investigated high curvature analysis (HCA) and integrated absolute jerk (IA J) for differentiating healthy and cerebellopathy (CB) patients performing pointing tasks. Seventeen CB patients and seventeen healthy controls were required to move a pointer at their preferred pace between...

    Mutations in DDHD1 gene have been associated with the SPG28 subtype of Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis (HSP). Clinical phenotype includes axonal neuropathy, distal sensory loss, and cerebellar eye movement disturbances. We screened 96 index subjects from recessive HSP families for mutation and...

    Joubert syndrome is a congenital brain malformation of the cerebellar vermis and brainstem with abnormalities of axonal decussation (crossing in the brain) affecting the corticospinal tract and superior cerebellar peduncles. Individuals with Joubert syndrome have motor and behavioral...

    For a long time, the cerebellum has been known to be a structure related to posture and equilibrium control. According to the anatomic structure of inputs and internal structure of the cerebellum, its role in learning was theoretically reasoned and experimentally proved. The hypothesis of an...

    Cerebellar injury is increasingly recognized through advanced neonatal brain imaging as a complication of premature birth. Survivors of preterm birth demonstrate a constellation of long-term neurodevelopmental deficits, many of which are potentially referable to cerebellar injury, including...

    Abstract. Long conduction delays in the nervous system prevent the accurate control of movements by feedback control alone. We present a new, biologically plausible cerebellar model to study how fast arm movements can be executed in spite of these delays. To provide a realistic test-bed of the...
