- Discuss the importance of the cerebellum in skilled motor activity.
- Outline the functions of the major cerebellar structures and subdivisions.
- List cerebellar afferent and efferent projections.
- Describe the neuronal circuitry of a cerebellar functional unit.
- Describe the major signs and symptoms of cerebellar dysfunctioning.
- Describe the role of the basal ganglia in control of movement.
- Outline the anatomical structures of the basal ganglia and discuss their functions.
- Describe the neural circuitry of the basal ganglia.
- Outline the afferent and efferent projections of the basal ganglia circuits.
- Describe the integrated inhibitory or excitatory influence of the afferent and efferent projections of the basal ganglia circuits.
- Explain the clinical signs of basal ganglia impairments.
- Outline the role played by primary neurotransmitters in the basal ganglia circuitry.
- Discuss common neurological conditions associated with basal ganglia circuitry dysfunction.
