Verbal disorders at cerebellar tumors: literature review
Keywords:cerebellum, tumors, verbal disorders
The particularities of verbal disorders at patients with cerebellar tumors, their frequency and depending on defeat’s character are given, risk factors and hypothesis of cerebellar mutism genesis are analyzed.
Dysmetria is considered as universal phenomenon of cerebellum lesion that manifested not only in verbal but also in sensor, motor, emotional, behavior and cognitive spheres.
