Cerebral dysfunction is a very wide term which points to performance deficits in a wide range of cognitive domains. So it may affect the short term memory, orientation of time, place and person, responses, reflexes etc.

Cerebral dysfunction also may affect the processing of information gathered by the other parts of the nervous system too. So there may be affection of balance, gait, sensations, recognition too.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
