Summary "This book on cerebellar disorders begins with our current understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the cerebellum, and then dives into the diagnosis and treatment of the many different disorders. As virtually all pathological processes can affect the cerebellum, the book actually covers much of neurology. Dr. Manto has been devoted to the study of the cerebellum in his career. His contributions are numerous in many areas, and his enthusiasm led him to found and edit the journal, The Cerebellum, which has rapidly become quite distinguished with an impact factor approaching 4. When dealing with the different disorders, the book approaches the patient in multiple ways. What is the differential diagnosis by age or by pathologic entity? What is the differential diagnosis for recessive, dominant, or X-linked disorders? What laboratory tests should be done to clarify the situation? What scales can be used to quantify the disorder? And then, what can be done for treatment? There is no reason to take a dim view of treatment when the possibilities are taken as a whole for all the ataxias"--Provided by publisher
