. However, to our knowledge, thus far, no systematic review has investigated the effect of PNF on the performance of JPS. Studies found that PNF enhanced activities of the superior parietal cortex 12 and cerebellum, 13 both of which contribute to the JPS. It may be possible that PNF contributes to

space on a subject-by-subject basis were used to circumscribe the primary motor and sensory cortices (M1S1), Brodmann’s area 6 (BA6), and cerebellum (Cb) as previously described ( Promjunyakul et al., 2015 ; Schmahmann et al., 1999 ; Wexler et al., 1997 ). These regions of interest (ROIs) were chosen

positron emission tomography (PET) during six successive 1-min periods. Decreases in brain activity were observed in the right premotor and posterior parietal cortex as well as the left cerebellum after practice, while increases were observed in the supplementary motor area (SMA) and primary motor cortex

brain areas such as the cerebellum and the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex that are engaged in EF ( 3 , 8 ). Thus, EF may respond sensitively to the execution of such motor skills. Furthermore, participation in group activities and sports games elicit cognitive processes due to the interaction with other

function of the cerebellum ( Bastian, 2006 ). Additionally, the more variable end points may also reflect relative difficulty using visual–motor control for individuals with ASD. Participants with ASD may have less precise feedback during the control phase of the movement leading to more variable end

. MRI data document that the infant cerebrum volume increases by 101% and the cerebellum by 240% during the first year of life. Results of this nature provide description but not function ( Knickmeyer et al., 2008 ). To acquire images with MRI, participants must remain stationary for an extended period

Balance proficiency is a primary motor skill associated with the integration of simple reflexes, proprioceptive inputs relayed to the cerebrum and cerebellum, and activation of the reticular formation, the vestibular apparatus, voluntary movements, and ocular
