Cerebellum (Latin for “little brain”) in red. Cerebellar means “related to the cerebellum.” Source: Wikimedia Commons Last week, I wrote a blog post that recapped how my neuroscientist father, Richard Bergland (1932-2007), and I created a split-brain model in the early 2000s we called “up brain-down brain.” Based on this model, the key to avoiding “paralysis by analysis” in sports is to “unclamp” the intellectual machinery of the prefrontal cortex and to let the cerebellum take the reins. I included a full-page diagram of this split-brain model in The Athlete’s Way, which was published on June 12, 2007. Tragically, my father died of a heart attack soon after the book’s pub date. After his death, I made a vow that I’d continue trying to figure out what the mysterious “little brain” does in honor of my dad who always said: “We don’t know exactly what the cerebellum is doing; but whatever it’s doing, it’s doing a lot of it.” The prefrontal cortex (PFC) in red. Source: Wikimedia Commons Around 2009, I began to realize that the key to understanding the interplay between the “thinking brain” (cerebrum) and “non-thinking brain” (cerebellum) was less about the location of these brain regions and more about… Read full this story
