An ancient part of the brain long ignored by the scientific world appears to play a critical role in everything from language and emotions to daily planning.

It's the cerebellum, which is found in fish and lizards as well as people.

But in the human brain, this structure is wired to areas involved in higher-order thinking, a team led by researchers from Washington University in St. Louis reports Thursday in the journal Neuron.

Well I know how the frontal cortex works, including the sensory and motor cortices. I assume the cerebellum is not really needed indeed, it just helps in adjustments i think for motor, implementation of the 'language planning'. It's not my concern right now.
