The anatomy of the cerebellum

Trends Neurosci. 1998 Sep;21(9):370-5. doi: 10.1016/s0166-2236(98)01318-6.


Vertebrate cerebella occupy a position in the rostral roof of the 4th ventricle and share a common pattern in the structure of their cortex. They differ greatly in their external form, the disposition of the neurones of the cerebellar cortex and in the prominence of their afferent, intrinsic and efferent connections.
