Select Your Answer:
1. Driving a car with automatic transmission
3. Writing a legible letter
4. Watching a tennis match
The extent of symptoms depends on which part of the cerebellum is damaged and the amount of the injured area.
Midline lesions tend to cause whole body movement abnormalities resulting in ataxia and wide based gait.
Lateral hemispheric lesions tend to cause difficulty with skilled voluntary motion of extremities.
The main function of the cerebellum is maintaining equilibrium and smooth motor control.
