This chapter addresses how the embodiment approach may represent a unifying perspective for examining the cerebellar role in emotional behavior and psychological traits. It is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather it can be a good starting point for advancing the cerebellar neural mechanism underlying embodiment. Our goal is to provide illustrative examples of embodied emotions and psychological traits in the emerging field of emotional and cognitive cerebellum. We illustrate how the cerebellum could be an important hub in the embodiment processes, associated with empathic abilities, impaired emotional identification and expression (as occurring for example in the presence of alexithymia), and specific psychological constructs (i.e., hypnotizability).
