M6 | Integrative action of the sensorimotor system – Cerebellum & Basal ganglia

Learning Objectives

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  1. Explain the components of a neurologic examination.
  2. Display familiarity with clinically established diagnostic signs of cerebellar and basal ganglia dysfunction.
  3. Discuss the importance of the cerebellum in skilled motor activity.
  4. Outline the functions of the major cerebellar structures and subdivisions.
  5. List cerebellar afferent and efferent projections.
  6. Describe the neuronal circuitry of a cerebellar functional unit.
  7. Describe the major signs and symptoms of cerebellar dysfunctioning.
  8. Describe the role of the basal ganglia in control of movement.
  9. Outline the anatomical structures of the basal ganglia and discuss their functions.
  10. Describe the neural circuitry of the basal ganglia.
  11. Outline the afferent and efferent projections of the basal ganglia circuits.
  12. Describe the integrated inhibitory or excitatory influence of the afferent and efferent projections of the basal ganglia circuits.
  13. Explain the clinical signs of basal ganglia impairments.
  14. Outline the role played by primary neurotransmitters in the basal ganglia circuitry.
  15. Discuss common neurological conditions associated with basal ganglia circuitry dysfunction.
