Cerebellar DISEASE

What is cerebellar disease?

Understanding cerebellar disease first starts with understanding the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the part of the brain that helps to coordinate voluntary movements. The cerebellum is located at the back of the brain and contains over 50% of all the neurons in the brain. The cerebellum receives information from all over the body and puts it together to help coordinate balance, eye movements, limb movements, and gait. A functioning cerebellum allows pets to do complicated movements smoothly and without difficulty. Cerebellar function can be impaired by many different conditions, including benign or cancerous masses, congenital malformations, infection, stroke, or head trauma.
