Family Medicine
For people with reading and learning disorders, cerebellar exercises are used to develop the neural pathways and address slow information processing. Known as brain-focused training, these exercises may benefit people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), although further studies are required. Cerebellar training involves physical exercises combining movement and balance. These exercises are believed to speed up information processing, while also improving the function of the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the brain region responsible for motor control, as well as attention, language, and other cognitive functions.
