In brief: Imbalance

The "cerebellar syndrome" refers to imbalance, primarily when walking, known as ataxia.
If the cerebellar dysfunction is temporary, imbalance may improve. If disease is progressive, ataxia worsens. Recently cognitive functions have been discovered which are modified by the cerebellum but these are not considered in the "cerebellar syndrome".
