The Ultimate Quiz On Cerebellum

The cerebellum receives information from the sensory systems, the spinal cord, and other parts of the brain and then regulates motor movements. Damage to the cerebellum can lead to loss of coordination of motor movement or the inability to perform rapid alternating movement. Take the ultimate quiz on cerebellum below and learn more about it.
