The Linguistic Cerebellum provides a comprehensive analysis of this unique part of the brain that has the most number of neurons, each operating in distinct networks to perform diverse functions.
This book outlines how those distinct networks operate in relation to non-motor language skills. Coverage includes cerebellar anatomy and function in relation to speech perception, speech planning, verbal fluency, grammar processing, and reading and writing, along with a discussion of language disorders.

"...a highly valuable guide for professionals of diverse disciplines such as neurologists and neuropsychologists, cognitive scientists, speech and language pathologists and neurolinguists, which will undoubtfully contribute to stimulate and orient future research." --Aphasiology
"...the book constitutes an exhaustive review of the current state of affairs in non-motoric (and motoric) linguistic aspects of cerebellar research. With a major emphasis on the latest developments in speech and language, developmental and acquired disorders and evolutionary and neuroimaging research, it magnificently intersperses historical findings tracing back to 1831...with the most recent and controversial aspects in the field. This makes The Linguistic Cerebellum a highly valuable guide for professionals of diverse disciplines such as neurologists and neuropsychologists, cognitive scientists, speech and language pathologists and eurolinguists... to stimulate and orient future research." --Silvia Martinez-Ferreiro, Aphasiology, 2016
