Learn About Cerebellar Degeneration

What is the definition of Cerebellar Degeneration?
Cerebellar degeneration refers to the deterioration of neurons (nerve cells) in the cerebellum (the area of the brain that controls muscle coordination and balance). Conditions that cause Cerebellar degeneration may also affect other areas of the central nervous system, such as the spinal cord, the cerebral cortex (the thin layer of cells covering the brain), and the brain stem. Signs and symptoms of Cerebellar degeneration may include a wide-based, uncoordinated walk; a back and forth tremor in the trunk of the body; uncoordinated movements of the arms and legs; slow and slurred speech; and nystagmus. Cerebellar degeneration can be caused by a variety of factors including inherited gene changes , chronic alcohol abuse, and paraneoplastic disorders.

Neuropsychiatry and Cognition in the Context of Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 3/Machado-Joseph Disease (SCA3/MJD)

Summary: This research investigates how cognitive-affective aspects evolve during the course of SCA3/MJD. Due to COVID-19 pandemics, this study protocol was adapted for online-only consultations. Evaluations happening after March 2020 have been done by videocall with patients, and no neurological evaluation was thus performed on these patients. A scale on Activities of Daily Living was added to the online ...

Phenotypes, Biomarkers and Pathophysiology in Spastic Ataxias

Summary: The aim of this study is to determine the clinical spectrum and natural progression of Spastic Ataxias (SPAX) and related disorders in a prospective multicenter natural history study, identify digital, imaging and molecular biomarkers that can assist in diagnosis and therapy development and study the genetic etiology and molecular mechanisms of these diseases.
