VIRTUAL REALITY AND INTERACTIONS AMONG CEREBELLAR FUNCTIONS

This line of research aims to investigate the interaction between motor, cognitive, and behavioral functions of the cortico-cerebellar circuits within the framework of the “sequence detection theory” proposed as general operational mode of the cerebellum (Leggio et al., 2011).
This research is carried out in patients affected by focal or degenerative cerebellar lesion and in healthy subjects.
Moreover, the use of virtual reality techniques allows to implement new neuro-rehabilitation protocols, specifically aimed to the recovery of the cerebellar disabilities.
