Abstract : Recent studies have indicated the additional role of cerebellum beyond motor coordination non-motor and socio-cognitive tasks. Exploration of cerebellar roles in timing and plasticity have been attributed specific roles in neurological conditions such as ataxia, severe disorders such as Parkinson's and epilepsy. Cerebellar dysfunctions elaborate the need of research on cerebellar circuitry and physiology to better understand neurological functions and dysfunctions. Structural and functional studies of cerebellum also implicate the connection between cerebellum with interconnected circuits such as thalamo cortical and basal ganglia networks during motor and non-motor functions. In this review, we list some of recently perceived roles of cerebellum in information processing, neurological conditions in disorders.
