Depends on severity: Memory loss from a head injury will not return. Some patients may have retrograde amnesia (loss of memory for incidents preceding the trauma) and some may have memory loss for events during and following the trauma. Neither will return. However, subsequent memory is usually normal.

Neck fracture: It all depends. If there was no nerve or spinal cord injury from the fracture then any aftermath is very unlikely. However, if there has been compression of a vertebra as a result of the fracture and it is not properly braced (or occasionally operated) there may be deformity or other consequences.

Cerebellum: Go to a library or medical library and look this up in a neurology or neurosurgery text, or the merck manual.
