Role of cerebellum in formation of postural and cognitive functions: clinical example with schmahmann syndrome

Cover Page


The data on the etiology and pathogenesis of cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome (CCAS) as well as clinical observations are presented in the paper. Schmahmann J.D. and Sherman J.C. described the spectrum of behavioral and cognitive disorders, which are the results of cerebellum stroke and are called CCAS. This syndrome includes disturbances of executive functions and is characterized by perseverations, absent-mindedness or disatractibility, visual-spatial disorders, speech production difficulties and personality changes. The authors considered the historical description of this syndrome, its etiology, pathogenesis and presented their own clinical observation of CCAS in a 70-year-old woman.
