In the past several decades the Cerebellum (or little brain) was previously considered a center strictly involved in balance and coordination. While this is in fact true, it’s role does not end there.
The cerebellum contains more than 50% of the brains neurons (brain cells).
The latest research in neuroscience now shows that the cerebellum is kind of like an orchestra director of the brain. It is involved in many aspects of coordinating brain activity.
The cerebellum is a co-processor of higher brain function and is linked to the opposite cerebral cortex. There is a direct neurological connection between the cerebellum and cortical areas of the brain associated with learning.
A poor functioning cerebellum can lead to clumsy moments, thoughts, emotions and even social interactions being clumsy.
