The recent paradigm shift in cerebellar neuroscience calls for the introduction of mundane technologies to fully unravel the role of the cerebellum in disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or ataxia. A novel approach comprising of optical (fNIRS) and electrophysiological (EEG) measurements can be used as a flexible diagnostic and monitoring tool and alternative to fMRI.
