Close Interrelation of Motor Development and Cognitive Development and of the Cerebellum and Prefrontal Cortex.
Diamond, Adele
Child Development, v71 n1 p44-56 Jan-Feb 2000
Argues that motor and cognitive development may be fundamentally interrelated. Summarizes evidence of close co-activation of the neocerebellum and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in functional neuroimaging, similarities in the cognitive sequelae of damage to dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the neocerebellum, motor deficits in "cognitive" developmental disorders, and abnormalities in the cerebellum and in prefrontal cortex in the same developmental disorders.
