Reorganization of the cerebrocerebellar
network of language production in patients with congenital left-hemisphere brain lesions.
Recent physiological studies have clarified the principles in the cerebrocerebellar
loops that coordinate voluntary movements.

In a recent functional magnetic resonance imaging study of the human brain demonstrated that manual acupuncture at the ST-36 acupoint modulated neural activity at multiple levels in the cerebrocerebellar

Theta-burst stimulation (TBS) is a newer form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) that modulates the activity of the dysfunctional cerebrocerebellar
neural circuits that are present in schizophrenia in a shorter period of time, and with more potent and longer-lasting effects.
The condition should be suspected in all patients with signs and symptoms involving the cerebrocerebellar
system, particularly when they coexist with signs and symptoms of headache and impaired motor coordination.
Enhancement in effective connectivity between culmen and primary sensorimotor cortex could be related to more bidirectional information transfer in the cerebrocerebellar
loops, which may lead to a stronger motor coordination effect of cerebellum on motor system.
